The program particularly highlights special legal issues that are of great theoretical and practical importance, encouraging a comparative approach to legal science, within the contemporary European context. Provisions of national law are being taken in close co-examination with European law, with the aim of confronting contemporary problems and challenges in a theoretically informed, while practically efficient, way.The main academic aims of the Law program from University of Nicosia are:
(a) the deepening of knowledge in specialized fields of legal science with theoretical and practical importance, as well as (b) the broadening of the understanding of legal science and of its implementation in a comparative European and International context. The program explores the function of national law and its interrelation with European and International Law. The methods of interpretation and of the application of law are analyzed in a practical context, while emphasis is given both to the theoretical parameters and practical implementation, with an overall view to enhancing the capacity of students to confront current challenges and problems, especially those they may be encountered in the European and International environment, either in the field of commerce and entrepreneurship, or in the field of human rights and social justice.
Students are given the opportunity to engage in academic research and the application of legal practices and models, gaining well-founded specialization in legal fields of particular importance.
The Programme mainly, but not exclusively, addresses itself to individuals who work or intend to do so in fields relevant to legal science: lawyers, judges, legal consultants or in general employees of companies and of other private sector entities or organizations, members of the public service or of some other public or semi-public agency or organization, members of non-governmental organizations, diplomats etc.
