The LL.M. IT-Law offers a one-year Master program for postgraduate students. The students spend the first semester in Hannover and the second semester (3 - 5 months) at one of eleven EULISP partner universities such as Bologna (Italy), Edinburgh (UK), Glasgow (UK), Leuven (Belgium), London (UK), Namur (Belgium), Oslo (Norway), Rovaniemi (Finland), Stockholm (Sweden), Vienna (Austria) and Zaragoza (Spain).
Many of the courses offered in Hannover are held in English. So far, students not only from other European countries, but also from Africa, Asia and South and North America have successfully graduated from the programme.
In the first semester students will be familiarised with the basics of European and German IT/IP Law. In the second semester, at one of our Partner Universities, you have the chance to advance both your professional as well as your language skills. With the completion of the semester abroad, students focus on their final thesis, which is due at the end of July. The year of studies concludes with a final graduation ceremony, usually in early November.
Among the lecturers teaching on the programme, are not only Professors of the University, but also lawyers from renowned law firms and public agencies. So far, this mixture has proved to be a great advantage for the students as they get to know different approaches to legal problems. Our graduates are employed with telecommunications and media enterprises, in IT/IP-Law practice groups with top-tier law firms and as well as public agencies. This programme is fully accredited by an independent accreditation agency (ZeVA).
The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the Donors' Association for the Promotion of the Sciences and Humanities also conferred the award on the programme of being in the “Top 10 International Master's Degree Courses, made in Germany“
There is also the opportunity to enrol in “Double Degree Oslo-Hannover” Programme (DDOH) in which students can obtain two degrees: LL.M. (Hannover), LL.M. (Oslo). The study phase in Hannover is followed by a study period at Universitetet i Oslo. It comprises an integrated and modularised curriculum, supplemented by a jointly-taught seminar and a final exam (master thesis).
