PhD and LL.M. - Postgraduate options at the Faculty of Law

The Faculty of Law offers postgraduate programs to gain the PhD- or LL.M.-Degree.

PhD

Professors at the faculty offer the possibility to do postgraduate doctoral studies with the aim to be awarded a „Doctor juris“ (Dr. jur., equivalent to Ph.D.). According tot he Doctoral Regulations, there is a general possibility to undertake such studies for lawyers who have not completed their studies in Germany. However, there are certain formal requirements that you should be aware of. In particular, it is not possible to register individually for doctoral studies without the approval and support of a supervisor, who must be one of the professors of the Faculty. We advise you to get in touch with professors if you are interested in pursuing a German Dr. jur. programme to see whether they have the capacity and interest to supervise you.

Inform yourself here about the possibilities regarding the PhD-Programs (available only in German).

LL.M.

The Faculty offers two German languaged LL.M. programmes to enhance knowledge in specific areas. One is in intellectual property law, the other in medical law. You may find further information here (available only in german).
