Course of Study
The law studies are subdivided into compulsory subjects (1.-5. Semester) and a specialisation subject (6.-8. Semester). The course of study will be completed by state examination (Erste juristische Prüfung) consisting of the first state examination (70 %) and the university exam (30 %).
The first five semesters are mainly about passing the intermediate examination and the so called Anfänger- und Fortgeschrittenenscheine and Grundlagenschein.
The specialisation study provides a supplementing and strengthening of compulsory studies in six areas:
- Internationalisation and Europeanisation of Law
- Law and Finance
- Foundation of Law
- Constitution, Public Administration, Regulation
- Work, Social Issues, Social Affairs and Life
- Criminal Justice
Furthermore there are two assessments in the range of key qualifications consisting of a successful attendance in a foreign language lecture and the attendance in a key qualification event which focuses on the law practice. You can find further information here.
During the non-lecture period a one month court internship and two internships each one month have to be completed in a freely selectable field of work. Further information can be found at the homepage of the Justizprüfungsamt Hessen.
