Master of Law and Business (LL.M./MLB)

The English-taught Master of Law and Business (LL.M / MLB) prepares young professionals for international careers in which an understanding of both legal and business concepts as well as intercultural skills are essential.

The interdisciplinary approach of the program brings lawyers and business professionals from all over the world together in one classroom. It thereby creates a unique learning environment which stimulates knowledge transfer and inspires the exchange of perspectives between disciplines and across cultures.

Exploring a company's lifecycle

The curriculum of the Bucerius Master of Law and Business is oriented along a single major theme – the founding and development of an enterprise.

The company lifecycle perfectly illustrates the relationship between legal and business issues. By using it as its structural backbone, the curriculum creates synergies among the various modules.

Degree Options: LL.M. or MLB

The one-year graduate program leads to either a Master of Laws (LL.M.) or Master of Law and Business (MLB).

MLB students at graduation

Students may specialize through the elective modules, the focus of the internship, and the topic of the Master's thesis. Depending on the specialization, students will be awarded either an LL.M. or an MLB degree.
