The LL.M. program takes place over one year (8 months lectures plus thesis), and is conducted on a full-time basis. The LL.M.-program consists of a general course and a specialization course. In order to obtain the LL.M. title all general lectures, a specialization course and a diploma thesis must be completed.
The general course lectures build the foundation of the program. After an introduction to the economic and legal foundations of the international economy and important foreign areas of law, the emphasis shifts to European and international business (e.g. EU Common Market, Competition Law, WTO, Corporate Law, Tax and Corporate Criminal Law). In addition students choose one of the following specializations:
  • International Banking, Finance and Insurance Law
  • International Sports Law
Students who are interested in taking the specialization course only can be awarded with a Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS).
