In almost all professional fields the increasing importance of digitalization leads to new legal problems that can no longer be fully covered by the general legal education at universities.

The new Master's program “Digitalization and Law” at the University of Würzburg in Bavaria, Germany, addresses this growing plethora of legal problems: it enables a detailed specialization based on basic legal training. Students are taught knowledge in IT law, legal tech, artificial intelligence, computer science and data protection law.

One year of professional practice as a prerequisite

The target group is graduates of law degree programs or other degree programs that provide basic legal knowledge. Applicants must have at least one year of qualified professional work experience. The extra-occupational studies are conducted in English.

The Master's program lasts three terms and starts in winter. The courses take place on site in the  historic Old University of Würzburg. Graduates obtain the academic degree Master of Laws (LL.M.). In addition, they receive a certificate of specialization in IT Law (Fachanwalt IT-Recht).

The application deadline for the winter term 2022/23 is September 15th, 2022.

Costs: Students pay 2,500 euros tuition fees per term. In addition, the semester fee of currently 143.60 euros is due each term.
