Σε συνεργασία με: University of Hertfordshire


Περιγραφή Προγράμματος

The LLM Programme is designed to provide an opportunity to students to develop and broaden their knowledge in the specified areas of law. To this end, the LLM Programme caters for a variety of individuals, ranging from recent law degree as well as non-law degree graduates who want to acquire specialist knowledge before embarking on their careers, to practicing lawyers and to people employed in the labour market who wish to complement their work with further specialised studies.

The educational aims of the LLM programme are the following:

To extend students' systematic understanding of the law and a critical awareness of current problems and/or research at the forefront of the subject areas of their choice;
To enhance students' intellectual, transferable and interpersonal skills as well as developing other postgraduate skills including independent research, the exercise of initiative and critical awareness of current problems;
To provide education that enhances students' prospects of professional, commercial, business or academic employment.
To provide a sound basis for the successful students' continuing education and development in law; and
To provide a supportive learning environment.

This programme is designed in such a way as to provide students with the opportunity:

To foster skills in the analysis of law related issues and to derive and implement effective responses to those issues;
To develop an understanding of the problems and the necessary skills required in planning and implementing solutions in different situations also by showing self-direction and originality in tackling and solving the problems at hand;
To demonstrate an in-depth and up-to-date knowledge of a range of legal concepts, values and rules operating in the selected substantive areas;
To show an ability to systematically and critically evaluate as well as provide their own original thoughts in the research and the operation of substantive law within the chosen areas;
To demonstrate originality in the application of knowledge to complex and unpredictable situations and an ability to synthesise and inter-relate legal concepts;
To demonstrate an ability to formulate new ideas based on information that they have independently collated and critically evaluated;
To exercise initiative and personal responsibility as well as demonstrate an ability to make decisions; and
To demonstrate self-direction and act autonomously in planning, prioritising and implementing tasks.

The LLM programme is academically distinctive in combining:

novel fields of study such as E-Commerce, Data Protection, E-finance and Marine Insurance which are until now only empirically dealt within the Greek labour market;
research methods as an integral part of the programme;
extensive exposure to issues pertaining to both thorough understanding of the substantive areas of law and problem-solving techniques.
