2nd cyle – Master Programme in Law
Master's study programme in Law is a new programme of legal studies at the Faculty of Law. It represents an upgrade to the new first-cycle programme and provides the formal level of education that is a prerequisite for taking the State Bar Examination. The new master’s study therefore cannot be compared to the old, non-Bologna Master’s study. The Master's study in Law is a one-year study that comprises two semesters and allows students to decide between the following study-orientation modules:
- General module
- Commercial law module
- State law module
- International law module
The study programme comprises 60 ECTS.
Students who fulfil all of the obligations required by the study programme receive the professional title Master of Laws (magister/magistrica prava).
