About Program

The Department of Law desires to mold legal professionals

capable of engaging in advanced research with an aptitude for

solving disputes. The latter may arise in applying established

legal rules as to the regulation of the relationship between

individuals within a society, individuals and the state itself,

or amongst nation states. We are proud to present a program

of education that is academically based on the English Legal

System. The program aims to give ample online and other

resources, enabling students to take full advantage of received

education and thus allowing them to compete in the international

arena.

Bachelor’s of Law (LLB)

The LLB in Common Law provides the students with the legal

concepts currently used in the Common Law tradition based on

the UK model which is the model also in place at the TRNC.

While most courses focus on legal principles found in English

Common Law, each student has a full review of those aspects

of local law that are based on Continental Legal System. GAU

students are found generally to perform with credit in the TRNC

Bar Exams. In the first two years, students are required to take

five core courses, generally taught for two semesters. In the third

year of the LLB course, students must take four core courses,

but are able to select their fifth course from available elective

courses within the term. Similarly, in the final year, students

will take three core courses and again have the opportunity to

select elective courses to complete their class load.

The Law program is approved by YODAK within the TRNC.

The LLB degree is, therefore, not normally appropriate for

citizens of Turkey that has a different legal structure. It is suitable

for the many international and TRNC students interested in

acquiring knowledge of for whom Common Law and European

Union Law are of relevance and importance. The LLB in

Common Law has been running since 1998 and have successfully

trained many legal practitioners both local and international who

are continuing their professional lives around the world. Law

students are expected to have a high level of achievement in the

English language.
