Law In the Assessment Year, there are two strands in the Law curriculum that have to be distinguished: 'Law Compulsory Subject' and 'Law Core Elective'. We differentiate between Compulsory Subject Law I, which is mandatory for all students and Core Elective Law II, which students in the specialisation Law have to complete. In the context of the Independent Studies Law I, the university offers specific tutorials for foreign language students. Mentoring students’ independent learning is a core principle of the independent study approach. The university offers independent study groups for foreign students (students who have obtained their Abitur / Matura or equivalent other than in German) as a support measure in case of language difficulties in working on the course content. In a pace comfortable for the students, the tutors work with them on the subject matter considering possible language difficulties. The students will also get the opportunity to discuss comprehension questions. The learning context of the study groups will be designed to help with corresponding course material so that foreign language students can achieve the set learning objectives of the course Law I. These groups are incorporated into the course registration (bidding) system.
