A normal academic graduate student load is three courses per semester and three in the summer session. A part-time program is available. Almost all of the classes are taught in the late afternoon and evening and on Saturday and Sunday. The degree requires the student to earn a CGPA of at least 3.0 to graduate. The degree requirement is for 10 courses or 30 credit hours plus thesis.

 

Students will take 4 core subjects in the first year:

  1. Modern legal research methods;
  2. Alternative Dispute Resolution;
  3. Comparative Constitutional Law;
  4. Legal writing

 

The International Business Law specialisation requires various courses in addition to the core subjects: 1) European Union Law III; 2) European Union Law IV; 3) Public International Law II; 4) Private International Law II 5) Company Law III: 6) Telecommunications Law; 7) Cyber Law; 8) Maritime Law; 9) International Business Transactions; 10) Public policy development and legislation for Business; 11.) International Environmental Law; or 12.) Master’s thesis (optional - in lieu of three courses).

 

Students are normally required to take at least three courses per semester, but not more than five. Any under-load or overload must be approved by the Dean’s office. The typical student will require three academic semesters and a summer session to complete the program. Not all courses are offered every semester. Those students who do not have a Law related undergraduate degree will normally be required to take at least one additional transition course as part of their core subjects. That course will be the “Legal Method.”
