The degree program
The four-semester Master's degree program is designed for graduates of the Bachelor's degree program in German and European Economic Law (DEWR) at the University of Siegen or another German or foreign university or university of applied sciences.
The program is based on the knowledge already acquired in the DEWR bachelor's degree program and deepens areas of practical relevance in a sophisticated manner. In addition to broad legal content and economic topics, the focus is on self-determined specialization. The education is interdisciplinary, i.e. interdisciplinary in law (approx. 80%) and business administration and economics (approx. 20%).
Students can choose between two focus areas: either "Corporate Law" or "Law of the Globalized Economy". After a common basic semester, students choose their specialization modules within the respective focus area from the second semester onwards. The modules can be freely combined according to personal interests, allowing students to set their own individual focus.
The courses are held in German or English. In particular in the specialization "Law of the Globalized Economy", a large number of the courses are held in English. The corresponding exams are taken in the same language as the course.
The academic degree of Master of Laws (LL.M.) awarded by the University of Siegen testifies to a high level of methodological competence and professional expertise in the disciplines of law and economics. The focus of the education is on deepening and broadening legal expertise on a national and international level. Special emphasis is placed on European law and the teaching of interdisciplinary contexts. Right from the start of the program, students can develop their own personal profile in business law. With innovative teaching formats, the master's program also promotes key professional qualifications such as communicative and social skills as well as the ability to act independently.
Admission to the degree program is granted to those who
a) Successfully completed studies of the following type:
- Bachelor's degree in German and European Economic Law or in a comparable course of study or
- Bachelor's degree in another degree program with at least 60 credit points in legal subjects or
- diploma or master's degree with at least 60 credit points in legal subjects or
- State examination for the 1st state examination in law
- good (2.5) in the case of a Bachelor's, Diplom or Magister examination
- satisfactory (6.5 points) in the case of the 1st state law examination
The current (subject) examination regulations always apply.
Practical training in a suitable business operation, a freelance practice / firm or a public office (administrative authority or court) at a scope of at least nine weeks must be completed during the studies. A suitable professional educational background and training or suitable professional activity before taking up the studies is equivalent to the practical work.
Examination regulations (FPOs) specify the basic structures of a degree program (e.g. admission requirements and contents to be studied). Students are automatically subject to the current version of their FPO when they matriculate for their first subject-related semester. This means that even if the FPO changes during their studies, the original version according to which they matriculated will remain valid (provided that the FPO does not expire).
The respective degree plan is the recommended example progress of the studies in individual subjects and is part of the FPO. Supplementary provisions and details for each module to be studied can be found in the appendix of the FPO (e.g. requirements for taking a written test or content-related information on the modules/events, ...).
The internship rules define the conditions under which the required or optional internships must be completed.
We recommend at least looking at the study schedule for your degree program before the lecture time starts, to ensure that you know which modules are intended for the start of your studies.
