What will I learn?
Our four-year Law with German Law LLB degree is specifically designed to prepare students for the demands of a global legal market. The course includes a year abroad studying at a university in Germany and is aimed at those with a strong grasp of the German language.
Throughout your studies you will develop an excellent understanding of core legal principles of both the English and the German legal systems whilst examining the law from a modern, international and critical perspective. You will gain insight into the impact on the law of cultural, economic and political developments, and learn how law affects everyday life in the UK, Germany and beyond. You will develop advanced legal, research, independent learning and writing skills, and will become a confident communicator, able to participate fully in debates and to present your ideas clearly, both in English and in German.
As a student on the Law with German Law LLB degree you will spend the first two years at Warwick University. In those two years you will gain a thorough grounding in English Law and at the same time study German Law modules in German. German Law modules are taught by lecturers qualified in the German jurisdiction, and tuition is held in small groups.
Your third year is spent at one of our partner universities in Germany. Thorough preparation and careful supervision while you are away ensure that you gain the maximum benefit from your year abroad.
Our partner universities in Germany are:
- Universität Konstanz
- Universität des Saarlandes (Saarbrücken)
- Freie Universität Berlin
For the fourth and final year of your studies you will return to Warwick and complete the LLB degree.
In addition, on registering with the German university itself and on completion of a dissertation, some of our partner universities offer the opportunity for our students to obtain an LL.M. in German Law.
