The Idea behind the study of business law is due to the changing economic life. The traditional legal training in law studies is geared towards the job profile of a universally applicable (uniform) lawyer with a focus on the profession of judge. It no longer suited the various law-related jobs in the corporate world. Above all, the lack of economic reference in teaching required the design of a new course that combines both economics and law.

When choosing a student, you should pay attention as much as possible to a course of studies that corresponds to the content compilation recommended by the Wirtschaftsjuristischen Hochschulvereinigung. According to this, at least 50% of the lectures should have legal content and at least 25% business and economic contents. The missing percentages are then filled with further legal, economic and especially the above-mentioned soft skills.
