Studying law opens up a wide range of professional opportunities in addition to the classic career paths such as becoming a lawyer, judge or public prosecutor. During the course of the program, students not only acquire legal expertise, but also learn how to efficiently analyse complex issues and solve them in a logical and differentiated manner. Students are trained in eloquence and argumentation techniques, as well to develop a razor-sharp sense of where the legal issues lie. These skills are of utmost importance, especially in management positions.
Moreover, law as a field of academic study is highly focused on the practical application of the discipline. The legal issues analysed in class are often drawn from real-life cases. Legal education is designed accordingly: following the law program, graduates undertake a legal traineeship which leads the way to becoming a fully qualified lawyer. During this period, trainees become acquainted with all practically relevant fields of work in the legal sphere.
