Dr. Cathrin Correll


The focus of my legal work is on public law, especially in the field of education law, licensing law and public aid.

I was already interested in constitutional and administrative law during my studies and legal clerkship, and after completing my legal clerkship, I initially worked in this field as an academic assistant at the Chair of Public Law of Prof. Dr. Hartmut Maurer, Konstanz. There I also completed my doctorate on a constitutional-legal-philosophical topic ("Freiheit und individuum - Eine Analyse zur Rechtsprechung des Bundesverfassungsgerichts"). Afterwards, I decided to pursue a practice-oriented career as a lawyer with a thematic focus on public law. Initially, I worked in an internationally oriented law firm in Frankfurt am Main, then in the law firm Redeker Sellner Dahs in Bonn, which specialized in constitutional law. After my privately induced move to Berlin, I worked for Gleiss Lutz in Berlin, also focusing on constitutional law and European state aid law.

In 2010, I joined PROBANDT Rechtsanwälte. There I am responsible for the area of public law/administrative law. My clients are institutions in the field of "education" and "medical care/clinics", but also demanding private clients with questions regarding administrative/constitutional law.
