  • Germany: University of Halle-Wittenberg - The Law Faculty

    The Martin Luther University of Halle-Wittenberg (German: Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg), also referred to as MLU, is a public, research-orientated university in the cities of Halle and Wittenberg within Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. MLU offers German and English programs leading to academic degrees such as B.A., B.Sc., M.A., M.Sc., Ph.D., D.Sc., and “Habilitation”.

    The university was created in 1817 through the merger of the University of Wittenberg (founded 1502) and the University of Halle (founded 1694). The university is named after the Protestant reformer Martin Luther, who was a professor in Wittenberg. Today, the university itself is located in Halle, while the Leucorea Foundation in Wittenberg serves as MLU’s convention centre (and hotel) for seminars as well as for academic and political conferences. Leucorea also hosts the Wittenberg Centre for Global Ethics, founded in 1998 at the initiative of Andrew Young, former US Ambassador to the United Nations, and Hans-Dietrich Genscher, former German Foreign Minister. Both Halle and Wittenberg are about one hour from Berlin by ICE high speed train.

    Following the continental European academic tradition, MLU has several faculties, regrouping academic staff and students according to their field of studies (as opposed to the anglo-Saxon collegiate university model):
    • Faculty of Theology
    • Faculty of Law and Economics
    • Faculty of Medicine
    • Faculty of Philosophy I (social and cultural studies, history)
    • Faculty of Philosophy II (ancient and modern languages, communication studies, music)
    • Faculty of Philosophy III (peadagogy)
    • Faculty of Natural Sciences I (biochemistry, biology, pharmacy)
    • Faculty of Natural Sciences II (physics and chemistry)
    • Faculty of Natural Sciences III (agriculture, geology, mathematics, computer science)

    The new university student: Bachelor and Master Degrees

    Presently, the Martin-Luther-University has changed, where applicable, the type of degree programmes it offers; students will now enter a two-level degree system. This two-level degree system will be introduced in Halle in the academic year of 2006/07 in almost all departments. The highest academic standards and the integration of research and teaching will be maintained. Normally, the bachelor’s degree is granted after six semesters; the master’s degree after four semester. Master degree programmes build on the bachelor degree and at the same time the old “Magister” and “Diploma” study programme are being phased out. Only when a BA has been completed can a student begin a master’s degree study programme. In turn, a successfully completed master’s degree is a prerequisite for being admitted into a doctoral programme to obtain a PhD.

    There are three possible variations of bachelor degree programmes: a course of studies with one major subject, a course of studies with two major subjects and a course of studies with one major and one subsidiary (minor) subject. The master’s programme consists of either one or two main subjects.

    German Law Faculty and Students to Visit Seattle University

    October 10, 2001

    Two faculty members and nine law students from Martin Luther University in Halle, Germany, near Leipzig and in the former East Germany, will visit the Seattle University School of Law in October.The group will attend classes and special presentations, Wednesday, October 10 to Friday, October 12.

    For more information on their visit to Seattle University, call Charles Rech in the School of Law office at 206-398-4300.

    "As a law school that is interested in providing opportunities for our students to learn about other legal systems, the visit by students and faculty from Martin Luther University in Halle, Germany will enrich the academic experience of our students," said School of Law Dean Rudy Hasl. "The reunification of Germany has involved the integration of two very different legal systems and has presented complex legal and social issues that the visitors will help our students and faculty to understand."

    Among the events scheduled for the group are the following:

    Thursday, October 11, a faculty presentation on the current status of the reunification process in Germany, by Karl-Heinz Millgramm, former Rector of Martin Luther University and currently presiding judge of the State Administrative Court in Halle, Germany and Winfried Kluth, chair of the public law department of Martin Luther University.



    Seattle University, founded in 1891, is a Jesuit Catholic university located on 48 acres on Seattle's Capitol Hill. More than 7,500 students are enrolled in undergraduate and graduate programs within eight schools. U.S. News and World Report's "Best Colleges 2008" ranks Seattle University among the top 10 universities in the West that offer a full range of masters and undergraduate programs.
