Program Description

In general, the Law Track takes three years and includes modules of at least 30 ECTS Creditsin addition to a composition of a dissertation. The dissertation must be a monography and should make an independent contribution to research. A record of study must be obtained for each module. If the record of study states that the module was "passed" (bestanden), the ECTS Credits designated in the doctorate regulations will be granted.

The curriculum contains modules from the areas of law and ethics as well as further modules that may be chosen individually. Moreover, a wide selection of educational offers exists both within and outside the university.

The duration of the program may be reduced by requesting credit for work and credit points already completed before the beginning of the doctorate program (Fast Track). The doctorate committee BmEL RWFwill decide whether to approve such work or credit points.

A sufficient knowledge of the German language is required for successfully attending the lectures and gaining ECTS Credits.
