The curriculum - which, in terms of the theoretical knowledge imparted, goes far beyond what the specialist lawyer regulations (§ 14b FAO) require for the award of the title "specialist lawyer for medical law" - includes, among other things, medical liability, medical criminal law, inpatient care, medical professional law and statutory health insurance law PKV.


The prerequisite for admission to the advanced training course in medical law is a first state examination in law with at least the final grade “satisfactory”. Other domestic and foreign degrees are recognized as long as there is no significant difference to the achievements to be achieved in the first state legal examination.

Applicants with the first state examination in law who do not meet the above requirements can nonetheless be admitted if they have been awarded the doctoral degree of law with at least the grade "cum laude", or if they have passed the second state examination in law at least have completed the grade “satisfactory”.

Furthermore, previous professional experience is required.
