The Faculty of Law and Business Studies at the Catholic Institute of Ljubljana offers a Master's degree programme in Law. The programme lasts two years (four semesters) and comprises 120 ECTS credits. The programme is offered as a full-time and part-time programme.
In order to be promoted to a second year, students must complete the study requirements of 45 ECTS from the previous year. Exceptionally, a student who has not achieved the required number of ECTS may also be enrolled in the upper year for justifiable reasons, such as maternity, poor social conditions, top athletes, etc. Students may repeat a year once during their studies. The student may repeat the course only if he/she has fulfilled at least half of the requirements of the previous year, i.e. 30 KT. He/she shall normally complete his/her studies within the time limit laid down in the study programme. For justifiable reasons, studies may be extended by one year. However, a student may be promoted to a higher year and complete his/her studies earlier than foreseen in the study programme.
The degree awarded on successful completion of the programme is Master of Law. The Master of Law programme provides an excellent starting point for a professional career or further study at a doctoral level in the EU.
The programme is structured according to the rules of the Bologna process and is internationally comparable with study programmes at Master's level in Slovenia and in the EU countries.
