Social law is a field of law that, in the broad sense, can also be regarded as a social science. Our studies in social law cover the organisation of the Finnish legal system, constitutional and administrative law, basic and human rights, and touch also on municipal and social law.
The courses will provide students with the ability to acquire and apply knowledge of norms. Moreover, they will learn to assess, analyse and solve legal issues that occur in practical administrative work and work life. Students will also develop your competence of dealing effectively with authorities and pursuing appropriate legal remedies, if needed.
The scope of the studies is 25 credits. Social Law is a good choice
for a minor for students whose goal is to work in the public sector or
for an organisation. The studies complement social scientific and
educational degrees, and expertise in social law is particularly useful
in educational administration.
Aside from general legal issues,
the teaching and research of Social Law is focused on social law.
Together with the Social Work subject, we offer social work students the
chance to specialise in the legal issues of their field. We also work
in close contact with the authorities in the field.
Note! The module is taught in Finnish.
