Law and Economics The course programme in Law and Economics offers a combination of legal and economic subjects, which is unique in Switzerland. The goal of this interdisciplinary degree program is to furnish lawyers with comprehensive economic fundamentals within the scope of their education. The course programme in Law and Economics equips you with legal and economic knowledge and skills at the same time. The sound legal education in the fields of private law, public law, criminal law, procedural law and international law is supplemented with a number of core subjects of Business Administration and Economics. The legal subjects account for two thirds of the degree course, and the economic subjects for one third. The purpose of the course programme is to convey legal and economic knowledge in a systematic, integrative way. The combination of the subjects is promoted especially by the integration seminars with which the education at the Bachelor's and Master's levels is completed. A degree in Law and Economics paves the way to diverse career options. Many graduates start a law internship and work as lawyers in law firms specialising in business law after passing their lawyers' examination. Thanks to the additional qualification in Economics, the studies also prepare them well for a career with a company, e.g. as legal experts or junior executives.
