About the Study Programme
The university study programme in Law is based on the principles of the Bologna Declaration. It qualifies students for all types of legal professions and provides them with the knowledge that a Bachelor of Law needs regardless of the chosen career, whether in the judiciary, the economy, the non-economic sector or in public administration. It also enables the continuation of studies in the postgraduate study programme in Law, further strengthening the skills that are required for all these professions.
The university study programme lasts three years or six semesters and is equivalent to 180 credits.
After fulfilling the requirements for the completion of a three-year university study programme Law I the graduate student acquires a professional title Bachelor of Law (LLB).
Abbreviated Title: LLB
The university study programme in Law is implemented as full-time (with concession) or part-time (without concession) study.
Lectures are organised in the morning and afternoon in two locations, i.e. in Nova Gorica and in Ljubljana.
Studies at the European Faculty of Law are primarily focused on ensuring high-quality expertise and applicable knowledge and skills that serve graduates and employers alike as added value in the labour market and in employment.
Following the model of renowned international universities, the Faculty introduced e-learning, where the student does not come to the teacher but instead the teacher comes to the student. This study mode represents an exceptional opportunity for people who do not feel comfortable with the conventional study mode. The main advantages of e-learning are the flexibility of the study process and the possibility to adapt it to the individual’s needs. It is suitable for students who find it difficult to attend lectures due to distance to the place of study and for employed students and students with special needs.
