Study Programme and Goal

The Tanzanian-German Centre for Eastern African Legal Studies (TGCL) offers structured and highly specialised LLM and PhD programmes to aspiring lawyers from all Partner States of the East African Community and beyond to qualify them for leading positions in the region. The thematic focus of the TGCL is on regional integration law with a special emphasis on the law of the East African Community. Consequently, the centre is one of the key institutions in the training of future leaders in East Africa. The programmes are conducted at the University of Dar es Salaam School of Law, in close cooperation with the Institute of African Studies and the Faculty of Law, Business and Economics, University of Bayreuth.

Against the backdrop of increasing globalisation and regionalisation, the centre provides new, interdisciplinary educational approaches that unite theory and practice. The courses offered focus on regional integration law, constitutional law and comparative law. Aspects relating to the East African Community play a prominent role. Furthermore, the programme gives students insights into German and European Union law. In addition, the students are trained in Transferable Academic Skills to support them at strategic points of their research.
