EBS Universität für Wirtschaft und Recht, Wiesbaden, Germany
EBS, the first German business university and one of the leading business schools in Germany, launched the new EBS Law School in Wiesbaden in 2011. EBS offers the first traditional university law degree program in Germany with a clear focus on business law. The degrees offered to students are the first examination in law (previously First State Examination), Bachelor of Laws (LLB), and Master of Arts in Business (MA).
Under the direction of the Dean of Law, Professor Dr. iur. Markus Ogorek, EBS Law School combines legal with business studies and aims to deliver research, teaching and executive education of high practical relevance, not only in the legal field but also at the intersection of business and law. It is still a small law school, but it has very ambitious goals and plans.
