Hanse Law School
The Hanse Law School is a cooperation between the the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg and the University of Bremen that exists since 2001. Under this cooperation both universities jointly offer two study programmes.
Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.): “Comparative and European Law” (Hanse Law School)
Law is increasingly transcending the nation state. Students will study not only German law bus also analyse different legal systems from a comparative perspective, as well as gain a deep understanding of EU Law. An obligatory study year abroad along with a respective language qualification and a practical study period of 14 weeks are an integral part of study programmes, as is the possibility to study two courses from any social science programme and the writing of a bachelor’s thesis. The main language of instruction is German.
Master of Laws (LL.M.): “Transnational Law” (Hanse Law School)
Modern societies are increasingly formed by social, economic and legal relations that dissolve the traditional boundaries of nation states. Markets have outgrown systems of national regulation and international policy coordination. Transnational corporations and other cross-border organizations and networks interact in new patterns and set new standards of governance. Transnational migration, mobility and IT-driven communication change mindsets and public discourses. Contagion in financial crises, climate change and other critical developments reveal an interdependence of modern societies through uncoordinated transnational action that requires new institutional responses. This master’s programme engages the phenomenon of transnationalization and its influence on the development of the law.
