The LL.M. Program is a specialized curriculum designed for graduates who already possess their first university degree in law. The aim of the Program is to deepen knowledge of the participants in the chosen area and to improve their theoretical as well as practical legal expertise and excellence. To this end the content of individual courses within the LL.M. curriculum is not to be purely theoretical, but quite to the contrary – the courses are highlighted by an interactive approach focused on practical skills and knowledge. It is under-taken to offer various extracurricular activities to the participants – such as case studies, moot courts, clinics, excursions, mini-conferences etc. Prominent international scholars will also be invited to participate in the Program, either by way of individual lectures or whole courses. The LL.M. is offered in three different specializations:
1. The Law and Business in the Czech Republic and Central Europe;
2. International Human Rights Law and Protection of the Environment; and
3. Health and Law.
The LL.M. study Program is organized into 3 semesters (two semesters of on-site study, one additional semester of distance study for writing a thesis and its defense). Students will be required to earn a minimum of 60 credits during the first two semesters through course work, written assignments and exams. Students are required to complete 5 general courses (each for 8 ECTS). Moreover they are obliged to choose and complete at least 4 courses of specialization (each for 5 ECTS). In the third semester students are expected to attend a Diploma Semi-nar, complete the Diploma Thesis under supervision of a tutor and defend it before a committee. Upon defending the Diploma Thesis and meeting all other requirements, the successful candidates are awarded with the LL.M. degree (in compliance with Section 60a of the Act No. 111/1998 Coll.)
