Generally speaking, law organizes human behavior through a framework of legal norms. The study of law addresses the challenges of legislation and jurisdiction, assesses them critically and develops alternative solutions.

The objective of this study program is for students to understand the basic rules of the legal system and their application. The legal system includes written law as well as so-called customary law. The laws that have resulted from these basic rules form the foundation of the legal system.

Students learn to reason through and solve cases with knowledge of legal norms and the interconnections between them. When law is taken as a minor, students learn this ability for one of the three core areas of the law (civil, criminal and public law) or fundamental law-related areas (legal history, legal philosophy and methodology).

This subject must be combined with a second subject.

Possible lines of work:

Administration (federal, state,district governments, municipal administrations), diplomatic service, international organizations (UN, WHO, OECD etc.), academia (teaching/research at universities or research institutions, etc.), journalism, public relations, media/communications industry (advertising, PR). 

Job options strongly depend on a graduate’s chosen major.
