1st cycle – University Programme in Law (undergraduate)
The first-cycle study programme lasts four years and comprises 240 ECTS. Students who fulfil all the obligations required by the study programme receive the professional title diplomirani pravnik (UN) or diplomirana pravnica (UN).
The basic goal of the first-cycle university study programme in Law is to form the professional profile of an expert who will be able to work independently in any legal profession that does not require taking the State Bar Examination. Students whose goal is to take the State Bar Examination are provided a quality basis for further studies according to the second-cycle study specification. Typical professions for the profile of a graduate in the first-cycle university study programme in Law are those in economics, administration with the possibility of conducting administrative proceedings, and secondary legal professions.
All additional information on the first-cycle university study programme in Law is available at the Students' affairs office for undergraduate studies (Referat za dodiplomski študij) at the Faculty of Law.

All lectures and seminar classes at the Faculty of Law in Ljubljana are held in Slovenian, so mastering the Slovenian language is extremely important, not just for successful studies, using Slovenian textbooks and understanding and communication with lecturers, but also for communicating with your academic colleagues.
During their first year at the University of Ljubljana, international students may attend the so-called Year Plus, in which the Slovenian language courses are mandatory. Year Plus is designed to help international students to adapt to the Slovenian system and culture in their first year of study in Slovenia.
