Special focus is laid on an interdisciplinary approach and the understanding of the essential principles of law, always bearing in mind the practical necessities of the legal professions. The faculty provides students exposure to the social and economic forces that shape the law and offers the opportunity for client service by joining our law clinic.

Our students achieve knowledge and understanding of various areas of the law, the professional and ethical responsibilities to clients and society as well as competency in legal analysis and reasoning.
