    8.8 /10

    After completing my high school, I was confused in two streams i.e. law and information technology. I found a course which is a mixture of both things. There were no such colleges offering that course at my place. Therefore, I opted for this college after reading a lot of good reviews. I have applied via the uni-assist app and paid € 75 as the application fee.

    Course Curriculum :

    My program is designed for four years and combines the proven legal basic training with a specialization in IT and IP law and first experience abroad. These are very advantageous in these legal areas since many areas are overlaid under European law.
