LLM Germany


MillieK
Hi! I've searched LLM programmes in Germany, and almost every university offers a LLM for law graduates from another country (fur auslanders), The LLMs are kind of an introduction to the german law. Does anybody know if there is any way to specialize in a specific law field, besides the thesis that you are gonna have to write. and if so what domains?

Dear MillieK, there are 'general LL.M.s' and then there are specialised LL.M.s. The latter focus on a specific subject and cover this subject in much more detail than a master's thesis ever could. There are also programmes which are kind of a hybrid between the two with mandatory (usually general) courses and more elective modules which give the student the opportunity to focus a bit more on one specific aspect.

Here's a convenient example (happens to be the LL.M. I work for ;)): The MBL in Berlin focuses on Business, Competition and Regulatory Law (i.e. it's specialised and not only a general introduction) which giving students in the last module (regulatory law) the choice between two different, highly-regulated industries: energy law or telecommunications law.

Best regards,
Dominik
