Public Law as a Minor

Legal aspects of examinations

All students taking Public Law as a minor must observe the respective examination regulations of their major. Resulting from this, certain general provisions also apply to your minor. 

“(1) The Study and Examination Regulations [as of fall semester 2014–15] govern the minor in Public Law within the framework of the following programs of study at the University of Mannheim: bachelor’s program in Political Science (B.A.), bachelor’s program in Sociology (B.A.), bachelor’s program in English and American Studies (B.A.), bachelor’s program in German Studies (B.A.), bachelor’s program in History (B.A.), and bachelor’s program in Media and Communication Studies. (2) If no deviating rules have been established within the framework of these regulations, the respective study and examination regulations of the student’s major apply to his or her minor in Public Law.”

II. Registration for Courses
