  • Special features regarding teaching
    In everyday legal life, it is increasingly a question of being able to solve legal questions from other areas in addition to Commercial Law issues. We therefore combine legal knowledge in the areas of Business and Corporate Law, supplemented by the basics of Business Administration and foreign language skills, with Energy and Environmental Law issues that are gaining importance under the impact of climate change. This offer at the intersection of Commercial and Environmental Law opens up an attractive alternative to "classic" Law studies at universities.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation

    To make sure that learning is also fun, we pay careful attention not just to exciting content, but also to everything else. This applies especially for seminars, who sensitise managers in issues relating to Sustainable Economics. To ensure concentrated learning and discussions, we offer groups an extremely wide range of seminar rooms with a pleasant atmosphere. Naturally, they are all equipped with the latest technology. The university library has a wide range of relevant specialist literature and up-to-date online databases.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    The guideline for applied research at the Environmental Campus is a thematic focus on questions relating to material flow cycles and sustainable development. As a result, Environmental and Energy Law, in particular Renewable Energies Legislation, forms an important focal point of research activities. In addition, colleagues regularly publish in specialist journals and collaborate on renowned commentaries on Economic and Environmental/Energy Law. Last but not least, the broad range of research areas on the campus offers students a chance to get involved in research projects at an early stage.
  • Support for founders
    Start-up office on the Environment Campus: This includes the teaching of basic knowledge about start-ups, as well as the design of the start-up process, including funding advice and post-start-up support, company management support. The key areas of support are set individually, depending on the requirements of the potential entrepreneurs. Support relies on a broad network of competence partners, such as economic development agencies, continuing education institutions, banks and many companies and coaches.
  • Other special features
