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.

Experts in contract law are sought after everywhere. In order to prevent costly legal disputes, the proper drafting of contracts is essential - whether in business, in associations or in the public sector. In particular, of course, in the banking and financial services sector, at insurance companies, law firms and tax consultancy and auditing companies. Sales and purchasing departments, legal and HR departments as well as contract management departments are other possible fields of employment. For example, you may become: 

Contract Manager (m/f/d)

Contracts are the basis of all business dealings and require expert supervision by someone professionally trained like you. As a contract manager, you will provide advice and support to all contracting parties, be familiar with contract databases and be actively involved in drafting contracts. You will also be responsible for monitoring compliance during the contract life cycle. And because no business can operate without the basis of an official contract, you will be able to choose the sector in which you can best use your skills. 

Specialist in insurance companies (m/f/d)

Your expertise in contracts, clauses and legal frameworks will make you particularly interesting for companies in the insurance industry. With your extensive knowledge of contract law, you will be able to react appropriately and promptly to contractual issues and perhaps even secure decisive competitive advantages. As a specialist, you will not only be an expert in contract law matters, but you will also be active in training employees.   

Employee (m/f/d) in the legal department

As an employee in the legal department for insurance and contract management, you will look carefully at the small print and help to draft legally secure formulations. When laws and current regulations change, you will check the impact on existing contracts and initiate appropriate measures.
