Program Description

The Law School awards LLB, equitable and respective of the University level four-year law schools. The duration of my studies is eight semesters of full-time study. Each semester consists of 13 weeks of instruction and 39 hours of instruction per course.

The program launched on 9.1.12 (formal recognition of the Cyprus Ministry of Education and recognition as the equivalent of DOATAP – decision 12.10.2012 no. 13300/2012). The original scheme was amended following decision No. 169 / 22.06.2015 of the Plenary DOATAP removing the Greek law direction, which was until then part of the curriculum. The new modified program is effective from the academic year 2015/2016.

Being the first among the Law Schools of Cyprus, to offer a single curriculum based on the Cyprus law (Anglo-Saxon law) complies fully with the provisions of both the Greek and Cypriot law and with the decisions of the Cypriot Authorities, under whose supervision belongs. At the same time, it responds to the European principles, in terms of academic and professional recognition and comparability of qualifications of Legal Studies (calculating credit courses, length of study, student evaluation, learning process, etc.) within the European Union.

Note: The tuition fee for the program is €7500/year if you are a resident of Cyprus.

Objective of the Program

General Objectives of the modified Program

Bachelor-of-Law-LLB-Neapolis-University-in-cyprusThe Legal Studies Program aims inter alia to familiarize the students during the four-year course with the “principles” and the basic concepts governing the Legal System of Cyprus, together with that of Greece. The main advantage of the program is that the student comes into contact with the two main families of law, the Anglo-Saxon (Cyprus) and the mainland (Greece).

The program of Law is aimed at students who either enrolled in the first year as high school graduates or are already graduates of other recognized academic disciplines and seek to acquire and graduate degree in law from Neapolis University, through the recognition of a certain number of courses from their previous studies, if the recognized courses share a cognitive link between them, provided that their studies in Law last at least three academic years.

Specific and ultimate goals of the modified Curriculum

The Student:

  • Is Equipped with the necessary, basic, knowledge and the necessary methodological tools to understand and be able to correctly interpret the case-law and legislative texts. While learning to distinguish the admission and influence in the Greek and Cypriot legal system of the European Union law and international law.
  • Learns from the first year of the production process, application and interpretation of law.
  • Understands the political and social issues affecting the adoption, implementation and interpretation of the law.
  • Learns to investigate legal sources and interpret the adoptive law rules on a systematic and methodical way.
  • Familiarizes themselves with the rules and secrets of legal thinking as the forensic reasoning of judicial decisions and, most importantly, is exercised to being able to articulate, write and speak, legal arguments and to develop legal reasoning.
  • Finally, is equipped with all the necessary legal skills to be able to monitor and participate, as an agent of the proceedings in litigation, draw up documents and defend arguments with the legal opinion in any kind of legal controversies or disputes.
  • The former cognitive and methodological equipment ensures the ability to a career as a future combatant lawyer, legal adviser in the private and public sectors, judge, official in an international organization, academia, etc..


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.
