In July 2017 the Faculty of Law at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität – one of the leading law faculties in Germany – offers a unique summer programme for young lawyers and law students.

MUST programme will be hosted in the Law Faculty of Law in the heart of Munich, a city with extraordinary cultural attractions, historical sites, and world famous beer gardens.

Target group

With an ambitious scope, we assume that MUST participants will be prepared to work hard both in class and in individual study.

Applicants need to have an excellent command of written and spoken English. All MUST courses and lectures will be held in English and the exam is also expected to be written in English.

Participation requires at least a basic university study of Law. However, Master or equivalent grades in the field of German and European Law are not necessary.

Course aim

MUST does not only provide an in-depth introduction to German and European Law but also includes organised visits to legal landmarks such as the Federal Constitutional Court and many other extracurricular activities. The courses are taught by distinguished lecturers who are renowned academics but also practitioners.

MUST draws special attention to areas of law, which are of interest to foreign lawyers working in business law, i.e. German Contract Law, Competition Law and Tax Law.
