Types of Courses

Most courses held at the Law Faculty are lectures. Here you receive a systematic overview of a field of law. Students can participate with questions and short contributions, but open discussion remain the exception.

Seminar (Seminar)

In seminars a specific subject will be discussed in depth with a small group of students on the basis of presentations. Every participant will have to prepare an academic paper largely on his own and hold a presentation on the topic of their paper.

The number of participants is limited. Usually there are registration deadlines.


Tip: To participate in a seminar you will have to contact the chair directly. It is at the discretion of the lecturer whether you can participate in a seminar without submitting a written paper.

Colloquium (Kolloquium)

A colloquium takes place under the supervision of a professor and encourages an open discussion about a specific topic. Preparation of each participant is required to make an exchange of opinions possible. Usually, a written paper is not required.

Moot Court

A Moot Court is a fictional lawsuit before an ordinary court or arbitral court. An international Moot Court normally occupies a student for a whole semester and is linked with the compilation of written memorials.

Practical preparation course (Übung)

Practical preparation courses are usually only attended by domestic students in order to receive all necessary certificates to be admitted to the first bar exam. One course paper and at least one written exam have to be passed successfully.
