LLM in Germany (Answer Please!)


Hello everyone!

I would like to apply an LLM program in Germany. However it is pretty hard to find information about LLM programs in Germany.
I can speak English and German. I may consider both English and German programs. It does not matter which language it requires.
That is why I would appreicate, if someone gives info about these courses in Germany.

I mean how are they? Are lessons hard for an international student? For example; I see they have 12 or 24 months programs, but I cannot see any semester. Does it mean there is no semester in LLM? What about exams, papers and other stuff? What kind of a system they have?

For an idealist student, which programs/universities you suggest?
For a student who wants to be more free, what is your suggestion?
For a student who wishes simpler lectures and exams, do you have any suggestion?

Thank you for your answers in advance!

They'll be similar to programs offered in other countries, although this can vary.

The MBL at FU Berlin for example is spread out over two terms (semesters) - the first from October to March and the second from April to September. ILF's LLM in Finance is similar (spread out over two terms with an internship in between and a thesis.

I'm not sure what you mean when you ask for suggestions for idealists, etc. I don't think judging by the metric of 'simpler' is the right way to approach choosing an LLM.
