Abstract

Many years after the Bologna declaration a possible reform of the German legal system is still hotly debated. Already 6 years ago the Universities of Bremen, Oldenburg and Groningen introduced a Bachelor/Master programme in European and Comparative Law (Hanse Law School). This contribution shall illustrate in how far these programmes meet new demands of the internationalised labour market. To achieve this the content and the aim of the programmes shall be contrasted with the traditional German legal education and reactions that graduates experienced on the labour market shall be analysed. What can be a promising way for universities to adjust their way of skilling to contemporary challenges? Are the students and graduates of the Hanse Law School, for example, experiencing that the study is “fortiter in re, suaviter in modo” as the slogan advertises and for what kind of career are they equipped?
