DESCRIPTION OF SUBJECT

Jurisprudence is concerned with applicable law, with its systematic and conceptional pervasion and interpretation, as well as the history of law and its relation to other areas of life.

Possibilities for additional qualifications

Graduates qualify for admittance to a Master’s Program

Subject combinations non-school career fields

In principle, first-year students are able to study any combination of main or subsidiary subjects offered by the University of Bremen.

The field has no special recommendations regarding suitable combinations with the main subject.

Information on possible overlaps within the following subjects.

Stages of study / curricula / description of modules

Students of Jurisprudence acquire competences in law. This includes gaining an understanding of how the law functions, together with its methods and effectiveness - and once in possession of this knowledge, being able to apply legal rules to social, political and economic issues.

Course schedule

Major fields

During the first academic year the fokus is put on the basic legal principles of law as well as the German constitutional law.

From the second academic year on the students specialize in one subject area of law: civil law, criminal law or public law.

General studies

General Studies account for 10 - 25% of the study programme. These courses train key competences for subsequent career fields. By building their own individual specialities, students are able to shape and amplify their academic profile.

Exams forms

Each module concludes with a module-specific examination.

APPLICATION AND ENROLMENT

Recommended abilities/ target groups/ requirements placed on students

Besides positive knowledge, the application of law calls for a certain mixture of feeling, (legal) immagination and methodology. It is important to be able to understand and interpret concrete constellations of interest and to develop a feeling for the prerequisites and needs of the practice.
Application, self-organisation and interest in reading non-literary texts are equally important prerequisites as intra-personal skills and ability to communicate. Participation in discussions within large groups and teamwork with other students can play an important role in determining a student's success.
