State examination: In general, only one subject is studied.
The study of law imparts the necessary knowledge of the law and the methods for the scientific handling of the law and its practical application. It forms the first part of legal education and is divided into three phases:
The studies, which are completed with the first state examination in Law, are followed by the legal traineeship as practical training. Those who then pass the second state examination in Law can, in principle, pursue any legal profession (the so-called "uniform jurist"). In the classic professions with the state - judge, public prosecutor, administrative lawyer, work with the EU in Brussels, diplomatic service - only relatively few jobs are available. For this reason, most graduates aspire to the legal profession, in which there are now numerous opportunities for specialization ("specialist lawyer for ...") in addition to general work. However, legal services are also in demand in medium-sized and larger companies. A considerable number of lawyers are also active in the management of companies in a wide variety of sectors - due to corresponding talent.
According to § 25 JAPO, three months of practical study are obligatory from the 2nd semester onwards, whereby, if possible, one month each should relate to civil law, criminal law and administration; at least two of these areas must be covered.
The length of the program depends on the progress of an individual's studies. The standard period of study, the time in which the intended program can be finished ideally is 9 semesters. The actual time taken to complete the program may vary. It is limited by the examination deadlines set out in the examination regulations.
