The LLB in Common Law provides the TRNC student with a full supported by the legal concepts currently used in the TRNC. While most courses focus on legal principles found in English Common Law, each student has a full review of those aspects of local law that are based on Continental and Code Systems. GAU students are found generally to perform with credit in the TRNC Bar Exams.
In the first two years, students are required to take five core courses, generally taught for two semesters. In the third year of the LLB course, students must take four core courses, but are able to select their fifth course from available elective courses within the term. Similarly, in the final year, students will take three core courses and again have the opportunity to select elective courses to complete their class load.
The Law program is approved by YODAK within the TRNC. The LLB degree is, therefore, not normally appropriate for citizens of Turkey that has a different legal structure. It is suitable for the many international and TRNC students interested in acquiring knowledge of for whom Common Law and European Union Law are of relevance and importance. We will be offering Turkish Law programs starting from September 2012 for Turkish citizenship holders.
Supplemental English and TOEFL Preparation Law students are expected to have a high level of achievement in the English language. Where necessary supplemental courses in English may be required.
