The 2nd-cycle study programme in Law leads to "magisterij" (master's degree). It is implemented by the Faculty of Law and is designed in a way to help students gain additional knowledge whether they have or haven’t finished the 1st-cycle study programme. Optional courses are offered to students giving them possibility to adjust their educational process according to their needs and expectations.


Graduates acquire necessary legal knowledge in particular interdisciplinary fields, made possible by the combination of mandatory and elective subjects. Emphasis is placed on training students on how to perform high standards research work and on the development of a multipurpose lawyer, qualified to work in all areas of the legal world, both for classical legal tasks and those tasks that are indirectly related to the law in terms of knowledge of general social competences and legal skills.
