Recruit Germany's top law students for your LL.M. program: LL.M. Day

The LL.M. Day is much more than a fair. At the LL.M. Day you can meet some of the best German law students and trainee lawyers to recruit them for your LL.M. programs. Candidates will visit your stand and engage in small group sessions for in-depth discussions.

Upcoming events


Online via Zoom (LL.M. Forum)



Well-organized event with excellent law candidates. Wonderful recruitment opportunity.
Pamela Serota, Cardozo School of Law, about the LL.M. Day Frankfurt
I have to say the entire fair was extremely well executed – the best virtual fair I’ve attended since COVID started.
Sidney Matthews, University of California, Los Angeles
I have participated in a few virtual fairs this fall, and this one was the most successful, in my opinion. You did a fantastic job and I really felt like this was a valuable use of my time and our resources.

Number and quality of participants

We expect at least 60 students and young lawyers at the LL.M. Day. However, this number has been exceeded regularly in the past few years:

  • Frankfurt 2023: 168 participants
  • Munich 2023: 103 participants
  • Berlin 2023: 111 participants
  • Frankfurt 2022: 148 participants
  • Online January 2022: 140 participants
  • Online November 2021: 189 participants
  • Online March 2021: 177 participants
  • Online January 2021: 183 participants
  • Online 2020: 190 participants
  • Munich 2020: 51 participants (special circumstances two days before first COVID lockdown)
  • Berlin 2020: 104 participants (in spite of early COVID scare)
  • Frankfurt 2019: 161 participants
  • Munich 2019: 112 participants
  • Berlin 2019: 110 participants
  • Frankfurt 2018: 133 participants

At least 80 of the participants have an average grade of 9 or more points (German grading system) in their academic records and thus belong to the top 15% of German law students. The others usually have at least 8 points, which is still excellent. These students are very serious about doing an LL.M. abroad in the near future.

Participants have to apply for the LL.M. Day and are only admitted if they are one year or less removed from graduation. Younger students are only admitted if their grades are outstanding.

Staff or alumni can represent you at the LL.M. Day

Most schools send staff members to represent them at the LL.M. Day. They are mostly faculty or student recruiting officers. However, some schools decide to send German alumni instead. This helps to cut costs, especially for non-European schools. In fact, our feedback surveys tell us that many students enjoy talking to alumni at the event. If you are on a tight budget and still want your school to participate in the LL.M. Day, sending an alumnus or alumna is a great alternative to traveling to Germany yourself.

Differences between the events in Munich, Frankfurt, Berlin, Online

All three LL.M. Days follow the same agenda and host a similar number of candidates. Participants in Frankfurt are mostly from western or central Germany, while those in Munich tend to come from the south and those in Berlin from the north and east. All LL.M. Days receive very similar feedback from both law schools and students. We would suggest that you simply choose the one which fits your schedule best. Many schools come to more than one LL.M. Day to meet law students from all parts of Germany and to qualify for our discounts (see booking sheet).

The first Online LL.M. Day (due to COVID) had a slightly different structure, but saw more participants than we ever had before at an LL.M. Day.

Additional branding effect

Participation in the LL.M. Day is more than meeting excellent law students in Munich, Frankfurt, and Berlin. You are also part of our offline and online marketing efforts that reach out to the German law community as a whole. This will help schools to achieve better name recognition among law students and trainee lawyers in Germany. Recruiting at the event itself and branding during marketing go hand in hand:

  • Participating schools are listed on our event web pages. The LL.M. Day pages count about 20,000 views anually combined.
  • The LL.M. Day is advertised multiple times in our mailings and newsletters that go out to scholarship holders and members.
  • Print materials such as posters and flyers are distributed to universities and student clubs. Print ads are published in law magazines.
