Program Description:

The programme aims to educate capable, independent and critical jurists. Jurists work in a wide range of occupations: lawyer, business jurist, magistrate, civil servant in national and international institutions, etc. The legislation they work with is complex and ever-changing. It regulates most aspects of society, ranging from the organisation of life as a family to, for example, the use of biotechnology. This means that legal education is unable to provide knowledge on all current legislation. This would be impossible and also insufficient. Legal education must educate jurists who are capable of identifying the evolving rules of law, tounderstand and use them in various situations.
