Legal education is an education branch with centuries-long traditions. Therefore, fundamental courses such as Civil Law, Criminal Law, Law of Obligations, Constitutional Law, Administrative Law are a part of all Law Faculties’ curricula. This is also a vocational obligation which exists all around the world.
On the other hand, newly-emerging social, economic, technological, cultural sectors that are subject to legal regulations should also be a part of legal education. Likewise, developments in economic and technological sectors that have gained acceleration in development starting with the second half of the 20th century, made other courses gain importance in legal education. This is why BİLGİ Faculty of Law’s curriculum includes elective and compulsory courses such as Competition Law, Information and Technology Law, Capital Markets Law, Intellectual Property Law, Consumer Law. A significant portion of these courses are offered in English.
Within this context, it should be underlined that, since the academic year 2016-2017, BİLGİ Faculty of Law has been offering 30% of the total course load of a student pursuing the four-year undergraduate program in English. Additionally, our students have access to a multidisciplinary education thanks to their ability to pursue minor and double-major programs.
