| Dr. Bernd Schneider, born in 1949, studied Law at the University
After taking the Second State Examination in Law in 1978, he was admitted to the Bar and initially worked as a research assistant in the German Federal Parliament.
After gaining his doctorate on a criminal procedure topic in 1979, he established his own law office and has since then worked continuously as an independent attorney-at-law. Right since the outset of his work as a lawyer, his particular commitment has been to criminal defence work, which he has been practising exclusively since about the mid-1980s. Apart from individual defence briefs, management consulting with respect to criminal law matters forms a major point of focus.
Dr. Schneider has published various specialist articles on these topics.
He is married with four children.
