Welcome to the homepage of International Legal Studies at the University of Bayreuth!
International Legal Studies as the new "Zusatzstudium" for law students is finally here and is offering a unique opportunity to acquire a comprehensive and practice-oriented education.
Dive with us into a world of international law, get to know other countries and their legal systems. Strengthen your language skills and widen your expertise in areas of Comparative, Economic and Business Law as well as African Perspectives and Law.
Based on the internationalisation focus of the University of Bayreuth, the programme aims to expand knowledge and understanding of various areas of international law. Knowledge of international law and the ability to work with foreign languages are increasingly important criteria in the globalising world and thus the job market. Along with only a few other universities in Germany, Bayreuth seeks to manifest the status of its law programme as being internationally oriented. A focus that is becoming increasingly popular, which drives our efforts to offer students a unique opportunity to acquire a comprehensive and practice-oriented education.
According to § 37 of the Arbeits- und Prüfungsordnung für Juristinnen und Juristen (JAPO) the students will be granted a "Freischussverlängerung" when having successfully completed the additional study programme.
