The Certificate of Studies in Eastern European Law is to be seen as a complementary qualification, which can be acquired during one's normal law studies.
This certificate proves that the owner has completed in-depth studies in Eastern European legal systems, covering East Central Europe, Southeast Europe, Eastern Europe, the CIS states, the Baltic states and Mongolia.
To obtain the certificate, students must achieve a pass mark in Eastern European law courses amounting to at least 16 contact hours per week per semester.
The courses can be completed at the participating universities – Berlin, Hamburg, Kiel, Cologne, Regensburg and Salzburg – in some cases as part of complementary postgraduate study.
However, the University of Passau only awards this certificate if most of the required assessments have been completed here.
The specific admission requirements for this certificate programme are detailed in §§5 and 6 of the study regulations for the Certificate of Studies in Eastern European Law (information in German).
