Transnational Legal Studies
The School of Law at the University of Lucerne is pleased to introduce to you our transnational legal studies program. We offer a fascinating and extensive curriculum of courses in English, as well as additional courses that are suitable for visiting students who have a basic command of written and spoken German.
Whether you are a law student at a foreign law school, a student advisor or counselor, or a student already pursuing a Bachelors, Masters, or Doctoral degree in law from our school, this brochure will be a useful tool for you to get acquainted with our current course offerings that have a transnational focus, as well as describing our program which continues to establish a distinctly global campus here at the University of Lucerne.
A «global campus» to us is not merely a slogan. Lucerne and the law school has grown from its humble roots as a small university to being a forum where students desiring to study abroad interact daily with students from abroad; where teachers of the law from various backgrounds interact; where each student can gain from his or her classmates’ experiences with international studies; and where everyone has a chance to broaden their horizons, both as lawyers and as people.
The information on this website will, in the first place, serve as a guide to those from foreign countries who are considering spending a semester or year here and are choosing a program of study while in Lucerne. Additionally, those students from the University of Lucerne seeking to spend a semester or longer abroad can prepare themselves for instruction in English and international legal principles by taking the courses listed in the course descriptions.
International legal education is becoming more and more vital to legal practice, and our hope is to give students the tools and means to fulfill their educational goals.
