About the LL.M in European and International Business Law

The LL.M Programme, in accordance with the aim of the training, provides competitive knowledge not only because of the quality of the lecturers, but also as a result of the unique and extraordinary method of the organization of studies.  It is a singular characteristic of the curriculum that it consists of courses which are worth fewer credit points, but which are of a greater variety, the advantage of which is that the fragmented, multilayered knowledge based on the different approaches will develop into a unified body of knowledge by the end of the studies, with the help of which during the writing of the thesis the student will be able to comprehend, understand and deal with current issues of business law in a complex way both at the levels of theory and practice. With a view to improving students’ competitive position, the Faculty also offers work-in-group and coaching type courses. These courses help students develop such skills that they may not have become acquainted with in their previous trainings or may not have had the opportunity to practise.

Over the training the student must complete 60 credits.
