In the contemporary globalized world, the law is no longer a predominantly national matter. Today’s lawyers are confronted with transnational dimensions appearing in nearly all legal issues.
The legal profession nowadays requires a multilevel capacity: a solid knowledge-based in one’s national law and, crucially important, combined with specific abilities to understand and efficiently handle the manifold transnational issues connected to it.
Possible matters for the lawyer are preparing a contract with your business partner abroad, consulting the transnational merger of companies, being involved in an international arbitration case, or confronted with the insolvency of a multinational enterprise. These interesting issues require a highly professional capacity, knowledge, and skills all of which you can acquire in this LLM program “International Business Law” offered by Danube University Krems, Austria, and Steinbeis University, Germany.
