Each course of compulsory selection and elective course correspond to 5 credits.

To facilitate the professional recognition of their diploma in Greece, students have the opportunity to attend 18 of the 26 required courses with alternative curricula in Greek law. Students are required to complete at least 240 credits in order to graduate



During the last years of study the offered procedural courses (civil, criminal and administrative procedure) and the practical issues of private, public, criminal and commercial law give the student an opportunity to summarize their knowledge through internships.

During teaching all modern online media offered by digital technology are exploited, for the better and easier consolidation of the curriculum (PowerPoint, Moodle, e-conference, online tests, etc.). The teaching is not intended, as usually happens, to the mechanical transmission of legal knowledge ex cathedra. It aims at fostering the student with the capacity to develop legal reasoning, formulate legal arguments interpreting the right rules of law and above all to prepare legal documents.

Finally the successful completion of legal studies program requires the student to participate in the learning process with personal and systematic work at home or in the library. Active personal involvement also equips the student with the ability to work alone, researching literature and legal sources and to acquire knowledge beyond that offered by the teacher and textbook.
