Katharina Seydel joins WAGNER Arbitration as further Trainee Advocate

10 April 2018

We are pleased to welcome Katharina Seydel as trainee advocate to our team.

Katharina studied law at the Universities of Bonn and Kiel. She also studied German as a foreign language at the Technical University of Berlin and is currently wrapping up her thesis on the comprehensibility of legal language.

Katharina has experience teaching German as a foreign language in various institutes. She has also taught German as a legal language for prospective court interpreters in Hamburg. Katharina has spent 4 years living in Namibia, where she supported the local Waldorf School Windhoek in various functions, among others as a committee member in the drawing up process of the school’s new statute.

After raising four children, Katharina has decided to finalize her legal education by continuing her traineeship and undertaking the second state examination. As someone who is particularly interested in the interaction between communication and law, she is an active member of the Berlin Humboldt University’s Law & Society Institute (LSI) and is especially interested in mediation. She will support our practice both in the fields of communication and mediation.

Katharina used to work as a sailing instructor in sailing cruises in the North Sea and Baltic Sea for many years. Sailing is her passion, which she now continues with her family. She speaks English and Afrikaans in addition to German as her mother tongue.
