English Law and German Law LLB

Humboldt University, Berlin

The Anglo-German dual degree programme allows students to spend their third (and if they choose their fourth year) at Humboldt University (Berlin, Germany). Students must pass at both institutions to receive an LLB and Certificate in Advanced German Legal Studies (which allows students to sit the First State Exam (Studiengang Rechtswissenschaften) award or an LLM (Studiengang Master of German and European Law and Legal Practice).

At the beginning of their second year, students decide which pathway they would like to pursue. First State Exam (Studiengang Rechtswissenschaften) pathway students spend years three and four at Humboldt while LLM pathway students spend year three at Humboldt and return to King’s for year four. Annually in March of year two, a Humboldt administrator comes to King's to advise students going to Berlin.  

Students apply directly to this programme via UCAS.

The Anglo-German programme can also be combined with the European Lawyer programme, after having completed the former, by adding one year at University Paris II (Maitrise en droit), the University of Rome La Sapienza (Laurea Magistrale) or the University of Amsterdam (LLM International and European Law)

The Anglo-German Law Society

Students on the programme run their own association, the Anglo-German Law Society, which provides additional support for students, both in London and berlin.


The AGLS aims to develop and nurture a close network of students and alumni, and regularly organises a wide range of events from social meetings to case studies and law firm presentations by potential employers.  For the AGLS website click here
