Course Summary:
Our LLB English Law and German Law course offers you two different pathways. You will spend the first two years of study at King’s College London. During the second semester of the second year, you must choose either The ‘First State Exam’ or the LLM option for the continuance of your studies. Please note that students can only opt for the First State Exam pathway if their school leaving certificate certificate is equivalent to the “Hochschulzulassungsberechtigung” and is also subject to an assessment by Humboldt University. Students who want to practice law in Germany will be interested in pursuing the First State Exam, while the LLM will be an attractive option for students who want to practice in England and Wales but wish to obtain an in-depth knowledge of German law. You have to pass examinations in German Civil Law and in the three required modules in order to advance to year three. A student who fails German Criminal Law may continue on the course with the proviso that the student is only allowed to pursue the LLM option at Humboldt University. Those German Law modules that have been passed will be recognised by Humboldt University as part of the Grundstudium (basic studies) for the First State Exam option. The 'First State Exam' option Students who opt for the course Rechtswissenschaften (Legal Studies) will spend the third and fourth year abroad at Humboldt University of Berlin. You will have to complete your Grundstudium (basic studies) and Hauptstudium (advanced studies) in order to be eligible to sit the First State Exam. You will first generally complete the Grundstudium by studying the foundations of German law (e.g. Legal Philosophy, Legal History or Law and Sociology). For the purpose of completing the Grundstudium, Humboldt will recognise the German law subjects undertaken at King’s. You will then study the subjects prescribed by Humboldt to complete the Hauptstudium (e.g., Company Law, Family Law, Labour Law, Civil Procedure, Administrative Law) and attend preparation classes for the first state exam. In order to be awarded a qualifying law degree by King’s College London you must study European Law at Humboldt University. Within an additional year you will complete the First State Exam in Berlin. Humboldt University will recognise the studies at King’s for the purposes of the Schwerpunktbereich No. 8 (Foreign Law/Studies at Foreign Partner Universities), which counts for 30% of the First State Exam. The LLM option Students who choose to pursue the LLM option will spend their third year at Humboldt University. You are required to study subjects in the following areas: foundations of German Law, German Private Law and German Public or Criminal Law. In order to be awarded a qualifying law degree by King’s College London you must study European Law at Humboldt University. However, you will also be able to choose from a wide range of additional modules. In order to gain an insight into the day-to-day practice of different legal professions you are required, during your year at Humboldt, to complete two placements with law firms or other public or private organisations. Finally, you will have to submit a Master thesis of 40 – 50 pages. In your fourth year you return to King’s College London where you will choose three subjects from the general list of LLB Law modules. In addition you will have to study Jurisprudence & Legal Theory. The Anglo-German programme can also be combined with the European Lawyer programme, after having completed the former, by adding one year at University Paris II (Maitrise en droit), the University of Rome La Sapienza (Laurea Magistrale) or the University of Amsterdam (LLM International and European Law).

    Stellar university. Students who are self-motivated, in relentless pursuit and passionate about themselves will be the ones who succeed here. You may find there is less 'Hand-holding' but it is a fact of life and we should take it in our stride. Take your future into your own hands people!

    Absolutely Excellent, beside the prestige factor which is definitely a plus. I recommend it.
