School of Law

Study Law in Erlangen

Law has been taught in Erlangen since the University was founded in 1743. Many prominent legal experts have studied at the University and contributed to its development.

Today, the School of Law is a modern and cosmopolitan place to study but remains proud of its history – just like the city it calls home which has not lost any of its Franconian charm while becoming an international center of innovation.

The School is part of an international academic network which benefits all members – student and lecturer exchanges, working groups involving international students, cross-border projects and research, and language courses are an established part of our activities. In addition, thanks to the wide range of degree programs on offer at the University, there are many opportunities to broaden horizons and gain an insight into the ideas and methods of other disciplines.
