The teaching methods of this programme are based on the principles of problem-based learning and will include lectures, seminars and an extensive use of group work. It is mainly sequential teaching where one course is taught one at a time, with the final exam before starting the next course.
In each course students will be divided into groups of about 10 people. Group work will include solving theoretical and practical issues related to the topics discussed in the course. There will be 3-12 written assignments for each course, depending on the size of the course. In the teaching and evaluation of each course knowledge from previous courses in the curriculum is assumed. Students need to fulfill a minimum of 75% participation in the mandatory work requirements. This includes participation in group work, writing and commenting on papers and participation in large groups/seminars. In addition, there will be a requirement of one approved written assignment before you can take the exam.
Students who fail to fulfill the mandatory work requirements cannot take the exam and will need to retake the course. The written assignements are handed in and reponded to in UiA's learning management system, Canvas.
Students are exposed to international dimensions and issues in teaching and in the curriculum literature. Several of the lecturers have an international background and are active in international research networks. International students also come to UiA to take part of their degree as an exchange student. This contributes to an international study environment, where most people come into contact with foreign students and use English actively during their studies.
Exchanges have been facilitated in the fourth semester of the programme. A stay at a foreign educational institution provides the opportunity to immerse yourself in topics and subjects beyond the course offer at the Business School. Stays abroad also provide an additional dimension in the form of meetings with other languages and cultures in a professional context.
For further information on exchange opportunities for the bachelor's programme in law, see https://www.uia.no/student/utvekslingInternasjonalt office's website.
The language of instruction is Norwegian. The rule of law /Rule of law (30 credits) can be taught in English if there are exchange students who will take the course.
On successful completion of this programme the students will qualify for work in private business, as well as local and central public administration. The courses in contract law, bond law and employment law provide an important and solid foundation for future work in private businesses. In addition, the programme will provide necessary qualifications for executive work in different parts of public administration.
