Overview

In the Law programme at Tallinn University of Technology, you can choose to specialise either in the EU and International Law or in International Relations.

In the field of EU and International Law, you will acquire the basic knowledge of the main fields of law in the context of the European cultural space and the European Union. You will get to know the specifics of the common and civil law and their relation to each other.

In the field of International Relations, you will acquire the basic knowledge of politics, international communication and the functioning of the most important international organisations necessary to understand cross-border relations. Acquiring the basic judicial knowledge is also essential.

Why This Programme?

  • Studies in TalTech’s Department of Law are based on extensive field-specific knowledge, but we focus primarily on European law and technology law. Our chair of Law and Technology is unique in Estonia and specialising in the field during Master’s studies is highly promising when considering the future.

  • In TalTech, renowned practitioners, lawyers and top specialists from international organisations are involved in teaching law. Study trips are organised to bar associations of different countries and the best students get to participate in international moot court competitions.

Career Prospects

The globalised world expects lawyers to know the laws of other countries and to have the skill of finding the best solution for cross-border disputes. You can safely say that a lawyer who wishes to succeed nowadays must definitely know international law.

The demand for lawyers specialising in technology law is also increasing. The digital and technological world is developing at a rapid pace and the regulation of information technology and intellectual property is becoming increasingly more important. Knowing international law creates a strong base on which to study technology and law.
