The German social benefit system is subject to constant change, which affects the work of companies in the social economy, welfare associations and social benefit providers. For specialists in the field of social law, the Master of Social Law and Social Economy (LL.M.) opens up a future-oriented and diverse field of activity.

The program deepens legal, social and economic knowledge and enables graduates to analyze and shape complicated legal relationships. Lecturers from science and practice, including judges of the Federal Social Court (BSG), impart the necessary skills. The Master's program is a cooperative program of the University of Kassel and the University of Applied Sciences Fulda. The students benefit from the inter-university teaching and lectures of the joint research association for social law and social policy (FoSS).

The three-semester program is not subject to admission restrictions. Admission requirements are a bachelor's degree in social law, social work, business law or an equivalent degree with a grade of at least "good" (2.5). Alternatively, a first or second state law examination with a grade of at least "satisfactory" entitles the student to study.

Students receive a law degree that opens up a wide range of career prospects, as they are able to analyze network structures between the various social service actors, resolve conflicts and establish cooperation. This enables graduates to work as (senior) employees in welfare organizations and companies in the social economy, with social insurance agencies or as project managers of research projects in the public sector.
