    Programme Description

    The Law program emphasizes equally the fundamentals of Civil law and Anglo-American law based on common law principles. This is more than simply an interesting pedagogical exercise; it is a very practical approach to the study of law in Europe today, where a partial blending of the two systems is currently taking place and an understanding of both the common law and the civil law is increasingly important. International business, in particular, requires an understanding of both systems of law, as does the European Union law.

    The aims and objectives of the John H. Carey II School of Law are:

    * to provide an appreciation of law based upon a wide general educational foundation;

    * to provide the student with a sound grounding in the fundamentals of law based on civil law and common law principles;

    * to present legal concepts and rules in their wider context;

    * to develop the student's ability to use and evaluate legal reasoning, and to construct legal arguments;

    * to develop the student's ability to undertake legal research and present the results effectively;

    * to develop the student's oral and written communication, and problem-solving skills;

    * to provide an opportunity to undertake some study in a discipline other than law;

    * to provide the students with the academic qualifications, knowledge, skills, and analytical ability to enter the legal job market immediately as productive professionals;

    * to develop a solid legal foundation enabling the students to continue their education through graduate studies before entering the job market as full-fledged lawyers, researchers or executives in other fields of endeavour.

    The program provides opportunities for students to develop and demonstrate knowledge and understanding, qualities, skills and other attributes in the following areas:

    1. Study skills

    By the end of the program, the student should have:

    * the ability to identify and use primary and secondary legal sources;
    * the ability to identify relevant contemporary and historical debates;
    * the ability to identify and retrieve accurate legal information;
    * the ability to select appropriate information from a wide range of sources and a large body of knowledge;
    * the ability to reflect on their own learning and seek and make use of feedback.

    2. Intellectual skills

    By the end of the program, students should be able to:

    * collate and synthesize facts, and identify issues;
    * apply legal knowledge to complex situations;
    * recognize potential alternative conclusions for particular problems and provide supporting reasons for them;
    * evaluate the law both in terms of doctrinal coherence and in relation to policy perspectives.

    3. Key skills

    By the end of the program, students should be able to:

    * communicate effectively, both orally and in writing;
    * work in groups as participants who contribute effectively to the group's task;
    * use word-processing, information retrieval systems, e-mail and internet resources;
    * use numerical and statistical information as part of an argument;
    * plan and manage tasks independently;
    * take responsibility for their life-long personal and professional learning and development.
