Orientation and goals

The Hanse Law School (HLS) is an international law programme based at the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg and the University of Groningen (NL). The main focus of law studies includes the content, origin, creation, and application of binding norms in social and economic relationships. Traditionally, law programmes are limited to the analysis of law within one country. However, this narrow perspective does not correspond to the demands of a globalised knowledge and information society. In the case of international economic relationships in particular, settlements in courts are less important than the general prevention of costly disputes through intelligently designed contracts. For this reason, it is important that graduates have the ability to work from the perspective of various bodies of national law, as well as a thorough knowledge of EU law and its effects on national law. Graduates should also be familiar with international treaties and the practice of arbitration, which are increasingly viewed as an alternative to positive national law in international economic relationships. What is essential for this is the study of the conditions surrounding the creation and formation of law.
