Laws, contracts and various forms of legally binding regulations have become, and keep becoming, an ever larger part of our society. Regulations affect the activities of businesses, central and local government institutions.
In this programme the student will gain in-depth knowledge of central legal terminology, methods, and values. The programme will also give the students a thorough introduction to some of the most important areas of law as they apply to private and public sector, like contract law, law on money claims, labour law and public administration law. Through lectures, seminars, group work and individual assignments the students will learn to understand and solve theoretical and practical juridical challenges relevant to both private businesses and public administration.

Students who have been admitted to the program in 2018 have the opportunity to study abroad at one of our many partner institutions worldwide in their 6th semester. However, to obtain exemption for the first three years of the Master's programme in Law at UiB or UiO, students must take alternative 2 in the 6th semester. Students who wish this opportunity can therefore not go on exchange. Contact the student adviser for further information.
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, law on money claims and labour law provide an important and solid foundation for future work in private businesses.
