MAKE YOURSELF CONTRACT-PROOF. WITH YOUR CONTRACT LAW STUDIES.
The economy is inconceivable without contracts. Just like human coexistence. Contracts are the basis of all relationships between companies and consumers, between suppliers and users. The market, i.e. the economic circulation and traffic, is a complex matter. The economy is becoming more and more legalised, the density of regulations is constantly increasing. Who can manage this task and keep an overview in contract negotiations? You, of course. With your Master's degree in Contract Law.
In your advanced 60 ECTS Contract Law programme, you will acquire well-founded skills in the drafting and management of complex business contracts. You will also delve into the tax aspects of contract drafting. You will become an expert in the area of civil litigation and conflict resolution and you will combine IPR and international law. Your studies here are practically oriented, including cases from contract practice; for example, one of your seminars will deal with the legal framework for management decisions. You will also acquire expertise in the legal framework for companies in the digital transformation and research methodology. In the course of your studies, you will be able to choose between different specialisations: choose between antitrust law (including EU antitrust law), insolvency law, corporate stabilisation and restructuring or legal risk and contract management. No matter where you want to go: with your Master's degree in Contract Law, suitable jobs with legal relevance will be open to you in most companies. Because you will know how to draw up legally secure and individual business contracts.
