What is it?

The degree program Law and Management in Social Work combines the topics of social work with legal issues and management content. After the second semester, students choose one of two areas to specialize in: either social work law, in which legal aspects from the field of social work are dealt with in greater detail, or alternatively social services law, in which students focus more on classical management topics in social work. Students graduating with a degree specialized in social work law receive state certification as social workers.


What can I do with it?

For graduates, there is a wide range of career opportunities spanning many areas of social work. For those who have specialized in social work law, these include positions in legal support services, juvenile court assistance, the social services of the judiciary or social law counseling services.

Graduates specialized in social services law can, for example, work in human resources departments, finance departments or quality management in various institutions engaged in social work.
