Students can choose between studying at both the University of Mannheim and the University of Adelaide or only at the University of Mannheim.

Covid-19 Pandemic - Off campus status

Dear applicants,

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we will offer you an „off-campus status“ for the fall semester 2020. That means that you will have the option to study at the University of Mannheim by having online lectures at home. In the second semester (spring semester 2021) the Master of Comparative Business Law (M.C.B.L.) will be continued in its original form (with attendance of courses in Mannheim). Of course you are welcome to attend courses in Mannheim! 

Please note that the fall semester will probably start end of September this year.

Thank you for your understanding.

Since I obtained my first degree outside of Europe, the Master of Comparative Business Law program provided me with valuable insights into European law and the internal market. Additionally, the teaching staff’s profound expertise and the diverse backgrounds of my fellow students gave me the opportunity to see the world from different perspectives.

Apart from the solid curriculum and the opportunity to study at more than one university, the thing I find most notable is the multicultural environment. It gives you the opportunity to meet, and learn from, incredible and inspiring people from all over the world.

I would recommend this program to people with a keen interest in the European Union, and its legal aspects in particular. People interested in interdisciplinary studies that cover aspects of law might find this program very useful, too. I also think it is a good fit for lawyers striving for an international career, as the courses provide a good overview of the various laws applicable to cross-border litigation.
