Law Studies

An innovative course of study with a conservative goal: success. Studying law at EBS Universität for business and law.

The professional demands on lawyers are rising. There is more that matters in a dynamic profession than just professional qualifications: Potential employers pay particular attention to communication and negotiation skills, as well as international and business experience. Which is exactly what is taught at EBS.


You study at one of the top business schools worldwide: EBS Universität scores top spots in university rankings regularly.

You get three degrees in less than five years: The top priority of studying is the First Examination in Law (formerly 1st State Exam), for which we prepare you intensively. With the Bachelor of Law (LLB) you obtain an attractive degree after only three years. You can then opt for a Master of Arts (MA) or Master of Science (MSc) at EBS Business School.

You meet economists at eye level: a special feature are the economic study portions at EBS; these are part of your studies from the very beginning. This allows you to earn a Master in Business for Legal Professionals (MA) in one semester or a Master (MSc) in Finance, Management, Real Estate or Automotive Management at EBS Business School in just one year.

You gain practical knowledge with real added value: During your studies you benefit from our network of highly attractive business partners. The intensive involvement of well-known law firms and companies in teaching ensures that you are in close contact with practice and build your own network from the first trimester on.

You gain international experience at some of the best universities worldwide: The EBS stands for internationality. All students spend the 7th trimester abroad at one of 97 partner universities of EBS University.

You benefit from high quality learning: With small classes and intensive support such as an exam clinic where your mock exams are analysed for errors, we offer assistance to prepare ideally for tests and top results.

You will receive active study and career support: The EBS Centre for Legal Education brings you into contact with well-known companies, organisations and firms through coaching, training and consulting, as well as recruiting events, networking activities and arranging internships during your studies.

Programme Structure

Programme structure

Excellent, profound and thoughtful.

The EBS University prepares you intensively for the First Examination in Law (formerly 1st State Exam) and offers the possibility of an integrated additional qualification in business (MA or MSc). Whether as attorney, judge or prosecutor, in companies, authorities and organisations: for graduates of the EBS Universität all doors are open.


Made for those with great ambitions: Law combined with business studies.

The law school is divided into trimesters with a lecture period of twelve weeks. You will complete your basic studies in the first four trimesters. The directly subsequent main courses period includes a period abroad in the 7th trimester and integrates seamlessly into the core subject studies of trimester 8. After three years, you have your first professional degree with the Bachelor of Laws (LLB). Furthermore, you get the opportunity to acquire an additional business qualification at EBS Business School.

Intensive preparation for the First Examination in Law (formerly State Examination)starts in the 10th trimester, which can be absolved following the 12th trimester as a so called “free shot” (§ 21 paragraph 1 JAG Hessen) . The integrated business management courses can be completed with a Master in Business (MA) or a Master of Science (MSc), additionally. Between terms you complete internships with a total duration of three months.
