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.
