Bachelor of law

General

Program Description

The course provides a well-founded scientific basic training in the foundations of the Swiss legal sciences as well as their disciplines and applications: criminal law, private law, public law, antitrust law, legal methodology, commercial law, etc.

The students are well versed in the various legal areas and laws. The final exam is a scientific Bachelor's thesis.

Accompanying the self-study, there are attendance meetings every three weeks on a Saturday. The course of studies is based on current research discourses and basic decisions as well as modern learning methods.

The Bachelor of Law is conceived according to the guidelines of the legal education at Swiss university universities.
