Studying Law at the University of Mannheim is more than just working towards the state examination. On your way, our Integrated LL.B. and State Examination Program in Law provides you with the unique opportunity to graduate as a Bachelor of Laws and acquire your first professional qualification after just six semesters. Subsequently, you will be able to specialize in different fields of business and economic law by pursuing a Master of Laws (LL.M.), a master’s degree in Competition Law and Regulation (LL.M.), or a Master of Comparative Business Law (M.C.B.L.). All our programs are taught in close cooperation with the renowned faculties of the Business School and the Department of Economics. This is business law and economic law at their best. This is legal science with a special focus. This is Mannheim.

I decided to study Law in Mannheim because it enabled me to combine Law with Business Administration. I was glad I didn’t have to decide on the direction I wanted to go in straight away. Being able to think in an interdisciplinary manner is really useful as I work as a lawyer in a corporate law firm, and have to address questions from both fields on a daily basis.
The combination of Law and Business Administration is unique. But the University of Mannheim has a lot more to offer. There is a variety of special events that take place outside of lecture halls. Take the Vis Moot, for example: The university provides a group of students with the opportunity to participate in the largest international competition focusing on resolving commercial disputes in Vienna and Hong Kong.
When I studied Law at the University of Mannheim, the environment was excellent. The professors and teachers are very supportive. It is obvious that they want their students to succeed because they give them advice that is tailored to their individual situation. And, by joining Pro Bono, a student organization offering legal advice, I was able to apply my theoretical knowledge to real-life cases early on. The additional LL.B. is also very well received by law firms, who appreciate that students are qualified in Business Administration.
I knew I wanted to start a career in business that is also related to law, so the Master of Laws program was the perfect addition to my qualifications. What I find most intriguing about the program is its interdisciplinary character: by looking at many different areas where law and business administration overlap, you are trained to think out of the box. Apart from that, small groups and a broad range of elective modules are its main assets. This enabled me to specialize in the fields that I was most interested in, and, by taking the opportunity to spend a semester abroad, to gain international experience, as well. With this set of skills, your career prospects are nothing but stellar!
I earned my bachelor’s degree from the University of Mannheim and knew right away that I wanted to stay for my master’s. The master’s program in Competition Law and Regulation combines law with economics, which enables me to analyze economic affairs from two different angles. Since the individual courses are made up of small groups, students can benefit from excellent support, too.
I chose the master's program in Competition Law and Regulation due to its ideal combination of law and economics. This enables me to gain insights into important sections of our economy which go beyond the legal sphere. With its elective courses Digital Economy and Energy, the University of Mannheim is leading the way into the future, which is why I decided to come here for my studies.
The master’s program in Competition Law and Regulation at the University of Mannheim not only focuses on questions of law, but also explores economic processes in depth. If you are interested in law, economics, and business administration, this program is the perfect choice for you. Personally I can say that all professors and teachers are committed to their courses and are very keen to pass on as much knowledge as possible to their students. As the number of students enrolled in the program is small, you can study efficiently and at your own pace while maintaining a high level of performance – a huge advantage in my opinion. So far, companies have always reacted very positively when I mentioned this program, so I expect to have excellent career prospects after I graduate.
The master's program in Competition Law and Regulation is particularly intriguing to me because it is so much more than just the combination of Law with Business Administration and Economics. With its modules in Energy and Digital Economy, it provides students with the opportunity to specialize in fields that are becoming ever more important in times of digitalization and changing markets. That is why the program allows me to deepen my legal knowledge and gain a better understanding of economic relations at the same time. I also like the mandatory internship, which enables me to learn more about relevant professional fields and to gain hands-on experience in Germany or abroad.
