German & European Economic Law
The degree program
The 6-semester degree program comprises 70% courses in law with a special focus on European and international law and 30% courses in business administration and economics. This bachelor's program follows the concept of a high-quality and broad basic education. A first specialization takes place within the framework of compulsory elective modules. More in-depth specialization is then possible in the master’s degree program. The graduates can therefore work in all fields if they want to start their careers after completing the bachelor's program. The broad basic education offers many options in the fields of economic law and business law and business administration for the recommended continuation of the studies in the master's degree program.
An internship with a duration of at least three months in a suitable business enterprise, a suitable freelance practice/law firm or with a suitable public body (authority, court) is mandatory for this degree program. The internship can be completed with a focus on business administration, law or interdisciplinary orientation. A significantly longer internship is recommended for those who want to start their careers immediately after acquiring their bachelor's degree.
Economic law professionals have very good career prospects, in particular in the interface areas in which well-founded economic and legal knowledge is needed. This includes in particular work in the fields of auditing and tax consultancy, in corporate consulting, insolvency administration and corporate restructuring, contract management or human resources.
Typical fields of activity for economic law professionals also include purchasing, sales, management assistance and later also management roles in chambers of industry and commerce and associations. There are other options in the field of public administration (e.g. Federal Foreign Office, Federal Cartel Office, etc.), but also in tasks with an exclusive focus on business administration with only a small legal component (e.g. marketing, banking and insurance).
Organization of the degree program
Subject examination regulations/degree plans/module handbooks/internship regulations
Subject examination regulations (FPOs) define the basic structures of a degree program (e.g. admission requirements and contents to be studied). The current version of an FPO automatically applies to students when enrolling in the first semester of study. This means that, even if the FPO changes during the course of your studies, the original version in effect at the time of enrollment still applies (provided that said FPO does not expire).
The respective degree plan contains the recommended exemplary course of studies in the individual subjects and is part of an FPO.
Supplementary regulations and detailed information on each module to be studied can be found in the module handbooks (e.g. requirements for taking a written examination or information about the content of modules/courses, …).
The internship regulations define the conditions under which the compulsory or optional internships must be completed.
We recommend that, as a minimum, you take a look at the degree plan of your degree program before the start of the lecture period so that you know which modules are intended for the start of your studies.
