Course summary

This undergraduate Law degree, involving an exciting year abroad at a German university in either Berlin or Bayreuth, has been designed to meet the need for legally and linguistically equipped lawyers who can cooperate and negotiate with European partners within a changing European context.

The German legal system belongs to the continental European family of legal systems known as Civil Law. By contrast, England is the home of Common Law, a family of legal systems which also embraces many nations outside Europe including the USA. During this undergraduate Law degree course you will familiarise yourself with both legal systems, thereby gaining comparative experience of two of the world's major legal families.

During years one, two and four of the qualifying law degree approximately two-thirds of your time will be spent on English law and one-third on German and German Law. Your third year is when you put your German to good use studying in a top German law school.

For almost 100 years Birmingham Law School have made a major contribution to teaching and scholarship, and you’ll learn from prestigious academics who are working at the top of their field influencing law and policy around the world.
