We usually expect applicants to have completed their two degrees with at least a grade of "fully satisfactory" (Prädikatsexamina mit mindestens der Note "vollbefriedigend"). In addition, we require well founded knowledge of English at least capable of development. Most of our attorneys, partners and associates alike, hold a doctorate degree and/or have spent an extended period of time studying or working abroad in English-speaking countries. While neither a doctorate degree nor an LL.M. is a requirement, we do appreciate such degrees.
