The Bucerius Master of Law and Business – in cooperation with WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management – offers a total of three specializations:

International Commercial Arbitration

What are the strengths and weaknesses of arbitration? What role do international arbitral institutions, ad hoc arbitration and transborder arbitration regimes play? How are arbitration awards created, challenged and enforced?

The Specialization in International Commercial Arbitration is coordinated by Professor Dr. Stefan Kröll, one of the leading German arbitration experts.


How do you manage innovation processes within established companies? What is “social entrepreneurship”? How do you best assist the start-up process from the legal side and what are common mistakes and threats to early stage deals?

Classes, internship and master’s thesis allow you to gain in-depth knowledge on these questions.

Legal Technology and Operations

How do law firms of the future use technology and alternative providers to improve their services for clients? How can we use algorithms to predict court decisions? How can computer programs support lawyers in their daily work?

The Specialization in Legal Technology and Operations requires participation in the corresponding Bucerius Summer Program in the summer before the start of the MLB program.
