The Master of Laws (LLM) programme aims to provide students the opportunity for specialization in two particular fields of legal science, (a) European Business Law and (b) Human Rights and Social Justice, both at a theoretical and at a practical level. It provides postgraduate education to holders of a Bachelor in Law or of some other relevant Bachelor (Political Science, European Politics, IR, Economics etc.).
Mainly, but not exclusively, it addresses itself to individuals who work or intend to do so in fields relevant to legal science (lawyers, judges, legal consultants or in general employees of companies and of other private sector entities or organizations, members of the public service or of some other public or semi-public agency or organization, members of non-governmental organizations, diplomats etc.)
It is expected that the programme will provide its graduates with additional qualifications and that it will enhance their cognitive as well as their managerial capacities when dealing with issues relevant to Law; this will help them enrich their career opportunities. Graduates of the programme also have the opportunity to pursue further studies at a PhD level.
The programme particularly highlights special legal issues that are of great theoretical and practical importance, encouraging a comparative approach to legal science, within the contemporary European context. Provisions of national law are being taken in close co-examination with European law, with the aim of confronting contemporary problems and challenges in a theoretically informed, while practically efficient, way.
