Department of Legal Studies

The Department of Legal Studies provides high quality advanced education in human rights, comparative constitutional law, and international business law. Its programs enable students to obtain a solid intellectual, professional, and practical skills in these domains in a global and intercultural classroom. Particular attention is played to analysing legal problems in their broader social, cultural and political context and seek solutions across continents and disciplines.

Our first master programs were established in 1992 to respond to the challenges of constitutional, legal and political transition to democracy. We have gradually expanded our curriculum to explore the challenges established and emerging democracies and their societies face in an increasingly globalized world. Today, our students come from over 30 countries and are received by our outstanding international faculty from 20 countries. The diversity of our academic community serves as a resource for professional development, a constant source of inspiration for developing new ideas and an unmatched opportunity for personal development in and outside classes.
