Master of Public Law

go to a list of Masters programmes in Public Law


This Masters programme closes the gap that often remains in a general public degree course. While in a traditional course of public economy the scope of study is too broad to include specific legal elements, a Master of Public Law serves as an additive that allows you to become a legal practitioner in the public sphere.

The degree programme in Public Law focuses on the relation between public and civil entities. Any state interacts with its citizens on multiple levels - environmentally or based on administration, education, urbanism, taxation or public services. Public Law serves to protect the citizen and their freedoms from the state as an entity.

Entry requirements to become a legal Public expert

As a precondition you need a Bachelors degree in public law or administration. Any equivalent degree will suffice, too. However, many universities demand a minimum of one-year professional experience in public law nowadays. Moreover, specialised programmes in Public Law such as a Master of European Union Law may require a precedent degree in a related field of study. Contact your university directly to learn about local and course-bound entry requirements.

Career prospects in Public Law

The one-year programme entitles you the academic degree Master of Laws and opens up your career ladder in public economy. As an additive to a degree in public law, this degree provides you with proficiency in legal advocacy, meaning you can interact as a lawyer – for state institutions or citizens. Moreover, corporate managers request public experts frequently; for instance, for establishing a legally sound European reputation.
