The continuing education course "Business Law - Corporate and Contract Law" imparts extra occupational knowledge and skills that go beyond the diploma study programme of law and have become essential in the modern juristic practice to already employed representatives of classic legal professions.

The continuing education course of “Business Law - Corporate Law” is aimed at competent and flexible jurists that see changes as challenges not as obstacles.
