The master program “Transnational Law” of the faculty of law of the University of Bremen is a one-year master's degree (60 ECTS CP). It is open to students who have completed a four years undergraduate degree in law (or equivalent). New students are admitted in the winter semester only.
Modern societies are increasingly formed by social, economic and legal relations that dissolve the traditional boundaries of nation states and cooperation between national states as defined by international law. Markets have outgrown systems of national regulation and international policy coordination. Transnational corporations and other cross-border organizations and networks interact in new patterns and set new standards of governance. Transnational migration, mobility and IT-driven communication change mindsets and public discourses. Contagion in financial crises, climate change and other critical developments reveal an interdependence of modern societies through uncoordinated transnational action that requires new institutional responses. The master program “transnational law” engages the phenomenon of transnationalization and its influence on the development of the law.
