Postgraduate Studies

The postgraduate degrees in law are the Licentiate of Laws (LL.Lic.) and the Doctor of Laws (LL.D.). The degree of Doctor of Laws is intended for those who are interested in pursuing careers as researchers and legal experts. The projected time required to complete the degree if studied full time is four years (240 credits). The aim of the Licentiate of Laws degree, on the other hand, is to provide practicing lawyers with additional professional education. The degree may also be used as a step towards eventual completion of the doctorate. The projected time required to complete the licentiate degree is two years (120 cr).  It is possible to complete both degrees in English.

The postgraduate degrees do not give qualification for posts or positions requiring legal education (LL.M. or equivalent).
