In practice, issues of business law often have a cross-border dimension and are determined by international and EU law. As a result, profound knowledge of the international business law is essential for a successful career in transnational companies and law firms. The LL.M. program offers its participants a highly practice-oriented training and is oriented toward the legal know-how necessary in a globalized world. With this focused approach, the program provides a shortcut to becoming an internationally successful expert in business law for practice in the context of European, international and transcontinental economic law. Thanks to the unprecedented cooperation between the Austrian and the Czech university, the participants are not only trained in international and European law but also learn the respective characteristics of Austrian and Czech law on a comparative basis.

“The LL.M. program focuses on those areas that are of central importance for the day-to-day practice of international law firms and legal departments. It also deals with different legal systems and international dispute settlement mechanisms."
Univ.-Prof. Dr. Thomas Ratka, LL.M.
Head of the Department of Law and International Relations
Professor of European Law and Medical Law

”The LL.M. program positions its participants as experts at the interface between national and European law and opens up interesting opportunities in the legal sector, including in the CEE countries."
