The Programme offers its students a unique combination of private and public law and interdisciplinary perspectives. Skills in legal analysis, critical thinking, research and writing is what distinguishes excellent lawyers and legal scholars.

Our interactive study methods are based on the latest pedagogical research and courses are taught in small groups of selected international students. The Programme creates a solid basis for doctoral training in law. It also provides you with the expertise necessary for a successful career at law firms and corporations, governments and international organisations, as well as at universities and research institutions.

 

The Programme is directed to students with a Bachelor of Laws degree. The applicant must have completed a lower university degree equivalent to a Finnish Bachelor’s degree in a University. Most of the credits in the degree should be from legal studies.

The required degree must be completed by 14 July 2017. If the required degree is not completed by the application deadline, applicants should enclose a statement from their home university stating the expected date of graduation.

The Programme admits a maximum of 20 students to pursue the Master of International and Comparative Law degree.

Starting from autumn 2017, all new admitted students who complete their degree will be awarded the Master of International and Comparative Law degree. It is not possible to obtain the Master of Laws Degree with any study background.  This means that students who have a Bachelor of Laws degree (ON, RN) from a Finnish university as well as those who have passed an EEA aptitude test for the Bachelor of Laws and have been admitted to the Programme in autumn 2017 or later, cannot obtain the Master of Laws Degree from the Programme.

In addition, a maximum of five students who have already been accepted to the Master of Laws programme at the University of Turku are admitted to the LIS study track as part of their Master of Laws studies. The LIS study track has a separate application process.

All applications are pre‐processed by the University Admissions Finland and evaluated by the LIS selection board. Applications will be checked for plagiarism. The decision on admission is made by the Dean of the Faculty of Law. The maximum of 20 students are accepted to the Programme.

The decision for admission will be based on the level of:

  • previous studies
  • grades
  • language skills
  • personal interests
  • written application examination.

The results of the admission will be published at the latest by 4 May 2017 at www.utu.fi/law/lis.

Applicants will also receive the notice in writing. The admitted students must notify the Faculty of Law as soon as possible, latest by 14 July 2017 at 15.00 Finnish time, whether they will accept the study place or not. If the Faculty of Law hasn’t received the student’s notification by 14 July 2017 at 15.00 Finnish time, they will forfeit their right to enrol in the Degree Programme.
