Tallinn University’s law program is a classical law program, which gives students a firm foundation to build upon in master’s level specialization studies. The law program covers the areas of legal theory, the history of law, private law, public law, and international law. The law program offers two modules to specialize in - International and European Law, and Finnish Law (offered only in Helsinki).
The program develops lawyering skills in case analysis, logical reasoning, reading comprehension, legal writing and research, and argumentation. Courses utilize the Socratic Method, as well as case presentations, research projects and ‘mooting’ – mock trials – to develop the skills needed to be a successful lawyer. Our program is taught by competent legal professionals and legal scholars, it has the right mix of the practical and theoretical, and the practical training experience and an interdisciplinary project are required to complete the program. At Tallinn University, we prepare future lawyers, business professionals and leaders of society to meet the challenges of today’s globalized world.
Law encompasses the rules and regulations that govern our daily lives. Studying law develops one's understanding of the levers of power in society, from the local, to the national, to the international level.
The program is designed to meet the challenges of a globalized world by giving students a classical legal education, while developing persuasive problem solving skills, and addressing topical legal issues such as the migrant crisis and climate change. Studying law at Tallinn University combines the theory with the practice - learning how to use and apply the law and pondering the timeless question of 'what law is and what law ought to be'. Studying law develops one's skills to become a lawyer by learning to think like a lawyer, which involves developing and refining problem solving skills, and learning - in a legal case - how to identify the issue, research the law, and apply the law. Learning to become a lawyer is not easy; it is a challenge.
The students are equipped with a skill set that is applicable for a career in the legal profession, and in a host of other professions in an increasingly globalized world - where mastering the rules is essential for success.
