The two-year postgraduate LL.M. study programme “MAster of Law, European Legal Practice LL.M. Joint Degree” leads to a joint degree certificate of the “degree awarding“ state universities in Hannover, Lisbon and Rouen and the so-called „non degree awarding“ universities in Pune, Brasilia und Vilnius.
The course requirements for participation in the programme includes excellent language skills and a university degree in law of at least three years of studies. The obligatory costs for students of the LL.M. degree course confine oneself to the enrolment fees.
The programme is primarily aimed at international applicants who wish to study at two of the universities within the consortium. The requirement to spend two years in two foreign countries is mandatory. Students spend their first year (two semesters) at one of the degree-awarding universities in Hannover, Rouen or Lisbon. The third semester can be completed at one of our non-degree-awarding universities in Pune, Vilnius, Istanbul, Ho Chi Minh, Brasilia or at one of the previously mentioned degree-awarding universities which the student did not visit during the first year of the course.
The commencement of the master thesis takes place in the fourth semester at the first host, degree-awarding university.
The ELPIS programme is being gradually modularised. The content of each module must be related to comparative, European or international law. Alongside a few compulsory and compulsory-choice modules, students can specialise on a topic of their degree work. To reduce this rigidity in the course structure, every consortium member offers a summer academy with special modules in English.
In addition, we offer students the opportunity to complete a paid legal internship at an international law firm or a company, to gain a practical insight into these working environments.
