What will I learn?

The doctoral programme in Law builds on the theoretical knowledge that students have acquired in their diploma course in Law. Doctoral students deepen their knowledge of specific subjects and bring their research methods to perfection. They learn how to conduct academic research autonomously, and how to contribute to the learning of their special field. The dissertation serves as an evidence of doctoral students’ original academic achievement.
