Find out more information about Public Law

Public law includes constitutional, administrative, procedural, tax and criminal law and sometimes also deals with situations between individuals or companies, if the issue affects the state. Constitutional law applies on relations between individuals and any of the state’s branches – the executive, the legislative and the judiciary.

Administrative law covers the agencies of the government, while procedural law focuses on how a trial or a legal action is taking place. Tax law looks into financial issues. Criminal law involves crimes committed by individuals and leads to sanctions that are meant to protect the society. The fields mentioned above can be studied in a Master’s degree in public law.

Students have the option to earn their Bachelor’s degree in public law and then continue their studies with a programme that will also bring them a specialization. After graduation, they have career prospects in public law as solicitors or lawyers and hold a stable job in a balanced environment, such as the state legal system.
