Best Part time Masters of Laws in LLM European Law 2017. The major LLM International & European Law belongs to the social sciences education area. Law may be studied in both its subjective and objective layers. The former refers to creative, continual and organized activity associated with interpretation of a legal text, or decoding of the normative content of a custom, in order to precisely establish legal norms. In the latter, organizational and structural sense, law creates institutions authorized to apply, create and execute it. The profile of the major LLM International & European Law is focused on the international aspect, with elements of comparative study of major domestic legal regimes. It concerns both the legal relations between states and other participants in international relations, as well as issues associated with the mutual relations between legal norms belonging to various legal regimes. Additionally, emphasis in the programmatic layer of the profile has been placed on matters associated with European Union law, both in the context of formulating and executing EU policies and activities, as well as in the institutional sphere and relations among Member States. Within the framework of the specialisation International Business Law in the LLM International & European Law major, emphasis is placed on regulations concerning international trade. The programme combines the primary elements of the international law regime regarding broadly-defined commercial law, both in the aspect of private law as it determines the relations between individual participants in economic life and in the public aspect related to legal interactions between commercial entities and public regulators. The special programme Modern Human Rights Law is focused on the transmission of knowledge and skills associated with various aspects of the legal situation of the individual in international law. The programme encompasses detailed issues of human rights law, as well as particular international law regulations associated with inter alia the situations of asylum- and refuge-seekers, and people from countries engulfed in armed conflict. Mission and objectives of the University All of the objectives of the strategy of the Faculty of Law, Administration and Economics (FLAE) listed below are entirely consistent with the mission of the University of Wrocław (UWr), and refer to the strategy of ensuring educational quality set out in Resolution no. 95/2014 of the Senate of the University of Wrocław of 24 September 2014. This is expressed in the development of courses of study conducted by the FLAE through enhancing the attractiveness of the educational offer resulting from the opening of the new major LLM International & European Law and greater openness of the University to international cooperation. This major is a response to the expectations of both the labour market and of candidates stemming from the process of globalization. Second cycle full-time studies facilitate the acquisition of knowledge and skills together with social competencies that enhance the position of the graduate on the international labour market. This process is to a great degree achieved through the engagement of students in the practical aspects of solving problems which arise in many areas of the legal sciences – through the use of practical, casebased methods. The construction of the programme makes use of the experiences of Western European educational institutors conducting similarly-profiled courses of study. Attention is drawn to the fact that, owing to historical and political considerations, these countries boast a far richer tradition of exploration in the legal sciences. In particular, the achievements of institutions from the United Kingdom (King’s College London, Queen Mary University London), the Netherlands (Tillburg, Leiden, Rotterdam, Utrecht), Ireland (Trinity College Dublin), Germany (Frankfurt, Freie Unversiteit Berlin), and Belgium (Vrij Universiteit) are deserving of attention; it is their experiences which serve as the foundation for the major LLM International & European Law. The synergistic effect achieved by combining the experiences of continental systems and those from the common law tradition serve to enhance the international component of the programme. In this manner the graduate receives a broader perspective for professional development, which undoubtedly provides added value in contemporary mobile society. Additional objectives of the undertaken activities include enhancing the quality of scientific inquiries and development of scientific and instructional staff, further development of the faculty library, expansion of access to Polish and international scientific databases, and improvement of IT infrastructure. These activities will serve to improve educational conditions and those of scientific research, and will enhance the comfort and efficiency of contacts between students and faculty administration through organizational changes and computerization of the work of faculty offices, particularly through facilitating contact with faculty administration in English, which is of particular importance for foreign students. Competencies expected of candidates Candidates for LLM International & European Law second cycle should possess basic legal knowledge on legal, political and social phenomena resulting from functioning in organised social structures, confirmed by the possession of a diploma from an institution of higher education . Candidates should also be characterized by the following : capacity for critical analysis of and the ability to synthesise information; capacity to perceive the links between various social phenomena and to forecast their future course, along with analysis of the mechanisms evoking them; the capacity to take decisions, including those requiring the balancing of various perspectives and arguments; the capacity to apply complex reasoning, cohesive argumentation, and to capture the essence of studied phenomena and processes. In addition, candidates should be appropriately skilled in English (subject-area language) to a level facilitating their active participation in lectures and tutorials (both in speech and in writing). Admissions rules Candidates for the LLM International & European Law programme should hold a diploma certifying completion of first cycle studies, or an equivalent certification recognized in Poland and allowing for the commencement of second cycle studies . In addition, confirmation of English language competency at the B2 level is required. Detailed rules concerning confirmation of compatibility of diplomas and language qualifications are governed by the relevant University regulations. Foreign nationals are required to have the legal right to reside in Poland and to undertake studies. Detailed rules are governed by the relevant regulations. [-]
