LLM Abroad-Germany/Leiden

I was wondering if there's any good universities in Germany??? I've heard of Leiden in the Netherlands and would like to know if that also is any good?

I am considering a application to one of the programs at Leiden. I am currently finishing up my MBA in Germany, but have not been able to find a LL.M. program taught in English in Germany. I am by no means an expert on LL.M. programs, but everything that I have read about Leiden has impressed me so far.

In my opinion, Universities that have a long tradition in Law are Cologne, Heidelberg, Freiburg and Munich. However, it really depends on what you want to do. For instance, if you want to do intellectual property law, Munich is the best place. There is also a dual degree program at TU Dresden where you can study in the US, UK or other countries for a semester. Heidelberg also offers a good program in conjunction with a University of Chile.
Hope this helps a bit!

I was just reading about the LL.M. program offered at the Europa Institut in Saarbruken. The program can be taken in English, German, or a combination of both. Does anyone know much about this program. How would it be viewed outside of Germany?

I personally haven't heard too many positive things about the Program in Saarbrucken. I might be wrong but from what I have heard from friends doing LLMs, Saarbruecken is not considered to be a very prestigeous University. If you want a program at a University which has established a certain prestige and tradition (and is known abroad) I would try Heidelberg, Freiburg, Munich and so on.
On the other side, if you know exactly what you want to specialize in, then you have to choose the program which has the biggest appeal on you. Good luck!

Ooh, @ coffee sunshine- Saarbrücken is the second oldest European law LL.M provider and, along with the Europa-Kolleg in Bruges, the most renowned! Check out their lecturer & student profiles! Don't think that officials form all the European institutions, known academics, pioneer lawyers etc. would teach there if the name stood for nothing... :p

Apologies- just realised my answer was probably a little rushed- the Universities coffee sunshine mentions are indeed known for their undergraduate degrees in law, but if you want to study for an LL.M then you have to look more specifically.. The Europa-Institut is part of Saarland University but offers an independent prgramme, system, reputation, etc... Hopefully this answer consolidates the context a bit more!
