LL.M. German Law for foreign graduates

University of Passau    Faculty of Law

Full time October LLM 2 semesters (1 year)

About the course

The master's degree in German Law for foreign graduates is a research-focused degree that imparts professional legal expertise and allows you to develop your legal skills.

Unlike most other disciplines, laws are unique to the societies that brought them forth, and therefore vary significantly from country to country. There is a steadily growing demand for legal practitioners with in-depth knowledge of the German legal system.

Building on a previous law degree earned abroad, this degree programme gives you essential skills and specific expertise in German law, while placing special emphasis on research.
