The University of Law (ULaw) is entering the Austrian higher education market with the launch of a full-time Master of Laws (LLM) programme in collaboration with Webster Vienna Private University.
The one-year programme is specifically designed for non-law graduates and will focus on conflict resolution, using a workshop approach to teaching. It aims to help students find work within their specialist area and provide those already in the field with the skills to take on a more senior role.
By completing this innovative course, all students will receive an internationally recognised master’s award with an essential grounding in English law.
This expansion follows ULaw’s launch into the German market earlier this year, highlighting its commitment to broadening its international offering. Over the past five years, the university has also run a successful LLB degree in Civil and English Law in collaboration with IE University in Madrid.
Vassilis Konstantinou, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (International Development) at ULaw, said: “English law plays a key role within the global business environment, particularly in regards to conflict resolution. This course will therefore provide an invaluable insight into how the English legal system supports conflict resolution.
“We are thrilled to be expanding our international teaching to Austria and are looking forward to equipping students with the intellectual and practical skills needed to gain employment.”
Students can start the LLM programme on either 12 March 2018 or 15 October 2018. They will be taught at Webster University’s Vienna campus by ULaw legal academics.
