Further information provided by the department

  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    Business lawyers work in an international and interdisciplinary context. The Business Law programme is therefore embedded in an international network of universities. To instil international and cross-cultural skills in students, a semester abroad at a European partner university has been included as an integral part of the programme. There is also a fixed time window allowing for optional studies abroad.
  • Common partner universities for exchange
    Southern Illinois University, USA; Nottingham Trent University, England; Linköping University, Sweden; Mykolas-Romeris-University, Lithuania; National Iwan Franko University, Lviv, Ukraine; Huazhong University of Science&Technology, China; Hogeschool Utrecht, Netherlands
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    Access to the legal databases Juris and Beck-Online is provided. Specific databases and programs (SPSS) can be used for empirical work. The university also provides computer rooms.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    The faculty is characterised by a broad spectrum of research activities. The students of the Master's degree courses are involved in application-related research and development projects. On the Master's degree course in International Business and Company Law, students work on cooperative research projects with partner universities abroad.
  • Website with further information on research activities
  • Support for founders
    Courses on entrepreneurship are integral parts of the Bachelor’s in Business Law. To accompany the programme, a law clinic advising start-ups has been set up in cooperation with the Entrepreneurship Institute of the SRH. Here, students can follow legal issues of university start-ups under expert guidance and supervision of a university professor. Students can also gain practical experience on entrepreneurship and start-ups at the Entrepreneurship Lab of the Entrepreneurship Institute.
  • Characteristics of assistance to differently abled persons
    The Faculty of Social Sciences and Law follows the tradition of the Heidelberg SRH University, which started in 1969 as a university for the vocational rehabilitation of students with disabilities. The Law programmes include approximately 10% of students with disabilities as so-called “rehabilitees”. Where necessary, they are supported by way of technical aids and coaching by the Faculty’s rehabilitation representative. According to the course and exam regulations, equalisation of disadvantages measures can be granted if the requirements are met.
  • Characteristics of diversity advancement
    The topic of diversity is integrated into the teaching and is encountered in various modules (concerning the intended social and personal skills). Throughout their studies and practice, students develop an attitude that is based in fundamental respect for interpersonal diversity and individual uniqueness. The Faculty’s diversity concept is equivalent to that of the university. It defines the action fields gender, ethnicity and culture, disabilities and students in difficult circumstances. The university was re-certified as family-friendly in 2016.
