Hi!
As an (almost) alumni of the Saarbrücken program I definitely can recommend it. The level is quite high and the atmosphere amongst the students is very international.
Your choice should be based on your future job-perspective. If you already know, that you want to work in financial/tax law, the specific tax-law program might be the better choice.
The range of the economic-law program at the Europa-Institute is broader. It covers for example competition law, intellectual property, tax law, corporate law... So if you want to have a broader knowledge/background of (European) economic law, this is your (and was my) choice.

Best,
E.

hello,
I'm accepted into the LLM program in English (master of European law) at Europa-Institute of Saarland, however,
I'm confused about what language on earth the curriculum will use. Are there any compulsory courses that are taught in German? I don't know German, so I will give up this program, if part of courses are taught in German.
Does anyone know this? thanks!

Hi Karen,
you have three possibilities to absolve the program concerning the language:
1. completely in English
2. completely in German
3. a mix of both
There are compulsory courses (eg Introduction to EC-law), but if so, there will always be a German and an English course.
So no worries about not speaking German! It is absolutely and without any problems possible to absolve the course completely in English.

Hope I could help... :-)

I do not really recommend Saarbrücken for postgraduate studies even if the University has a good reputation.
Actually, the city is very old and ugly. It is not like Heidelberg, Berlin, Munich or Frankfurt.

By the way, t is very depressing to live in Saarbrücken if you come from a big city (specially during the winter).

good luck

Actually the majority of last year's students see this differently... :-) We had a VERY nice time in Saarbrücken!

Guys,

I am looking for a good LLM in International Tax taught in English but in a french/german language speaking country (so not interested in the US nor in England).

I'm looking into Leuven/Tilburg European tax College or the Vienna University, but I can't find any specialized rankings on the web.

Does anybody know which Tax School would be the best?
