About the Exam

Module 7 - Digital Law of the LL.B. programme International Law provides you with knowledge on issues related to the digitalisation and law.

The module is concluded by a written exam for 8 ECTS credits. The requirement for this is the completion of the introductory and orientation phase (StEOP). The sample timetable for the degree programme places the examination in the 3rd semester. However, if the requirements are met, it can be taken either before or after this semester.
