About

Our Master’s in Law equips students with the skills to systematically orient themselves in legal issues while providing them with the ability to quickly familiarise themselves with new fields of law.

The special focus on issues in commercial and international law clearly sets this Master’s programme apart from other Law programmes at Swiss universities.

The MLaw is aimed at graduates who will later be admitted to the Bar. It is primarily geared to Swiss legal practice and provides a demanding generalist legal education. The high percentage of elective courses also enables our students to set their own priorities in line with their personal and professional interests.

The Law (MLaw) programme is offered by the University of St.Gallen (HSG).
