One of the goals of the LL.M. programme “EALS” is to bring what are increasingly necessary, critical and interdisciplinary reflections on legal elements and paradigms of cross-border legal transactions into actual legal practice. The participants will be placed in a position to carefully and confidently familiarise themselves with the initiation, formation and implementation of cross-border legal transactions in the pluralistic network of European and Asian legal systems on national, supranational and international levels.
- Graduates must hold a degree in law with 180 ECTS (a minimum of 6 academic semesters must have been completed).
- Applicants with other (non-law) degrees and a minimum of 3 years relevant professional experience may also be considered.
- Applicants who do not have English as their first language must include evidence of English language proficiency with either:
A test result in the International English Testing System (IELTS, 7 pt minimum)
Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), internet based test 100pt minimum, with the following minimum section requirements:
Reading: 20, Listening: 20
Speaking: 20, Writing: 20
Students with a first or second degree with the English language as medium of instruction do not have to submit a TOEFL or IELTS test report, but need a statement from their university to confirm that their education language was English.
The LL.M. programme “European and Asian Legal Studies” (EALS)
addresses a unique topic, namely the “shaping and steering of
cross-border transactions”, and does so in every sense, from both the
European and Asian perspective.
The LL.M. programme is based on the analysis of problems that arise
in legal practice and solution-finding competences in the field of
interdisciplinary comparative law. Participants of the course acquire
the necessary skills to understand and critically discuss all aspects of
the organisation and steering of cross-border legal relationships and
legal transactions between Europe and (South-East) Asia.
The University of Vienna is delighted to cooperate with CityU Hong Kong in this exciting programme.
Cooperation with (South-East) Asian partner universities and their
expertise in the area of (South-East) Asian law and its connections to
Europe means a firsthand comparative and multi-dimensional perspective
of legal materials and cases.
