Law (LLM)

Law (LLM) (LL.M.)

Enrich your legal career with an LL.M. from FAU’s renowned law school! In only 2 semesters you will earn the Magister Legum. Your examination consists of a master’s thesis and an oral examination. With an equivalent foreign degree, you gain access to this exclusive degree program.

What is the degree program about?

This program is intended for students who have already obtained an academic degree equivalent to the First State Examination in Law at a university abroad.

The LL.M. program lasts two semesters. There is a possibility of extension, but this must be applied for to the spokesperson of the department (Associate Dean/Dean). At the end of this period, the student should prove that he/she has mastered the basics of German law and that he/she is able to work on a selected legal problem in an academically in-depth manner within this framework. This proof is to be provided by the three-month Master’s thesis as well as the oral Master’s examination, which is to be taken at the end of the second semester.
