Combine the Master of Law and Business with the Bucerius Summer Program in Legal Technology and Operations to obtain a specialization in Legal Technology.
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?
If you are interested in technology and how it will influence the practice of law, and especially the practice of business law, in the future, combining the Master of Law and Business with the Bucerius Summer Program in Legal Technology and Operations is the perfect choice.
Credits from the Summer Program (10 ECTS) are transferable to the Master of Law and Business and may replace the two mandatory electives. This gives you the opportunity to either take two additional electives or to extend your mandatory internship period during the Master's program.
Requirements for a degree with Specialization in Legal Technology:
- Completion of the Bucerius Summer Program in Legal Technology and Operations (10 ECTS) before taking part in the Master's program.
- Completion of an eight-week internship in the field of legal technology
- Preparation of the master's thesis on an interdisciplinary topic in the field of legal technology
Ideally, applicants for the summer program will have had previous exposure to the field of legal technology—be it through practice, conferences or coursework. Applicants without field experience must be able to demonstrate their interest in detail.
The Specialization in Legal Technology and Operations may be combined with either the MLB or the LLM degree.
Students who wish to obtain the Specialization in Legal Technology must:
- submit complete applications to both programs at the same time
- note in both applications that they wish to combine the two programs (as the applications are processed in different departments)

An eye-opening experience and chance to learn from field pioneers
"The Summer Program in Legal Tech was an intense three weeks spent learning about the fuzzy future of law, law firms and legal practice in light of developing technologies. The program opened my eyes to completely unknown potential disruptors working hard to redefine the role of the future lawyer and offered an unparalleled opportunity to learn from the pioneers in Legal Tech from across the globe. In the end, it gave me the confidence to pursue my master's with a specialization in Legal Tech at Bucerius."
Complementary knowledge to prepare for challenges in professional life
"The Legal Tech Summer Program complements knowledge acquired during the Master of Law and Business with a solid introduction to themes like machine learning, product development and legal design. Bucerius makes a point that the learning of law is becoming increasingly more interdisciplinary, and combining both programs makes me feel more prepared for the challenges that lie ahead in my professional life."
