This study programme is offered in cooperation with the Distance and Independent Studies Center (DISC) of the Kaiserslautern University of Technology.

The conversion Master's programme 'Tax Law for Business Operations' has been designed for working professionals who deal with questions and issues relating to taxation law and who wish to broaden the areas in which they can work. The programme is of interest both for graduates without any formal legal training and for qualified lawyers.

Programme participants will learn to master the increasingly complex taxation-related issues that businesses now have to deal with, significantly strengthening their professional qualifications by broadening the areas in which they are typically employed. The academic curriculum has been designed so that students learn about taxation law in a way that allows them to apply what they have learned to practical issues arising in their business processes. The programme focuses in particular on encouraging an understanding of the terminology, mindsets and methodologies needed in order to develop integrated solutions to problems of practical relevance.

The programme curriculum covers content required for lawyers wishing to acquire the German specialist certification in taxation law (Fachanwalt für Steuerrecht). However, the final decision regarding recognition of this content rests solely with the relevant bar association or bar council.
