What should i study? Training for business law

The business law course offers a good alternative to studying law for anyone who wants to study “something with law”.



In the following, you will find information about the study contents and professional perspectives after completion of the studies, as well as an appropriate Linktipp with a university database.

The idea behind the study of business law is due to the changing economic life. The traditional law education in law studies is oriented towards the job description of the universally applicable, (single) lawyers trained mainly in the profession of judge. It no longer fit into a variety of juridical activities in the corporate world. Above all, the lack of economic relevance in teaching required the design of a new degree program that combines both economics and law.

The idea

The idea for the business law degree program was born and in 1993 it was offered for the first time at a few universities of applied sciences in Germany. It should take another six years before 1999 was the first university to include the degree program in their offer. Meanwhile, the degree program has become established and graduates are in numerous Company used in key positions.

Course Contents

As is also to be derived from the name, economic law studies are taught both economics and law. Typical lecture subjects include:

  • Business Administration
  • Steuerrecht
  • Mediation and dispute resolution
  • Economics
  • English for economists
  • contracts
  • Soft skills (rhetoric, presentation)
  • Marketing
  • human Resource management

What to look out for?

When choosing a student, you should pay attention as much as possible to a course of studies that corresponds to the content compilation recommended by the Wirtschaftsjuristischen Hochschulvereinigung. According to this, at least 50% of the lectures should have legal content and at least 25% business and economic contents. The missing percentages are then filled with further legal, economic and especially the above-mentioned soft skills.

Prospects after graduation

Restricting a restriction on the activities after the completion of the studies: Economic jurists can not work as legal or prosecutor or judge, in short, in all areas which require a state spouse. This results in numerous new employment opportunities in other sectors and sectors. These include, for example, jobs

  • in legal departments of small, medium and large companies. Here, business lawyers deal, for example, with the drafting of contracts, the preparation and support of mergers and acquisitions (“mergers and acquisitions”) and provide legal assistance with business decisions.
  • at law firms, where economic lawyers work, for example, in the field of mediation or insolvency administration.
  • in auditing and tax consulting companies, as well as business consultancy services.
  • With the broad economic and legal knowledge, economists are well prepared for activities such as auditors, company or tax consultants.

In addition, there are of course various other professional perspectives, among others with banks, insurance companies, personnel and financial service providers. The main focus is on how to focus on studying as a student.
