Leuphana University of Lüneburg is a modern, innovative and growing University that focuses specifically on sustainability and governance as well as international and European law. Interdisciplinarity is key at Leuphana University of Lüneburg where students may take courses across faculties and disciplines.
Leuphana University is renowned for its innovativeness and unique university model within the German academic landscape. Based on a comprehensive and holistic education philosophy it considers itself a humanist and sustainable university. Although Emperor Friedrich III already granted permission for founding a Higher School for Law in Lüneburg in 1473, it took over 500 years to open the Leuphana Law School, which was only established in 2013.
Leuphana Law School is the first Law School in a German public research institution that offers interdisciplinary study programmes mainly conducted in English. It brings together all Leuphana-based legal scholars to deliver teaching and supervision leading to undergraduate and graduate degrees (Bachelor in Law, LL.M. and PhD). Combining law and business issues through a special inter-disciplinary approach, research and teaching at Leuphana Law School is both innovative and internationally focused.
The faculty of economics hosts the newly founded Centre of European and International Law (CEIL), with a research and teaching agenda tailored to International and European economic law. In this context, you would benefit from access to resources, activities, courses and events of the already existing joint LLM programme in International Economic Law with the UoG. Leuphana also hosts the European Centre for Advanced Studies (ECAS), an independent research institute that was co-founded by UoG and Leuphana. ECAS organises events on various topical issues that you will be encouraged to attend.
