The Law School (LS-HSG) offers three programmes: a classical programme in law (leading to a Bachelor’s degree [BLaw] / a Master’s degree [MLaw] / a Doctorate in Law [Doctor iuris]); a programme which combines the study of law and of economics (leading to a Bachelor’s degree [BLE] / a Master’s degree [MLE] in Law and Economics); and a programme "Master of International Law (MIL)" in English language. Each programme is coordinated by a professor of the Law School who acts as the programme director. The programme directors are supported by two administrative directors.

It elects a Dean and Vice Dean who serve for a period of two years. Since February 1, 2021, Professor Bardo Fassbender is Dean of the Law School, and Professor Peter Hettich is Vice Dean.
