Earning a Law Degree in Czech Republic
Students wishing to obtain qualifications needed to practice law in Czech Republic can choose to attend public or private universities. There are also "state" universities offering military/law enforcement education and training as well. Law degrees consist of three year bachelor's programs and four or five year master's programs culminating in mandatory internships and passage of the bar examination before students can practice law. Competition to enter a Czech Republic law degree program is high and only the best students are accepted into legal programs at both public and private higher education institutions.
Attending public universities in Czech Republic is free. However, anyone over the age of 26 who is still taking university courses will not be allocated "student status" that qualifies them for social services such as medical insurance. Students enrolled in a law degree program at a private university will pay between 2500 and 3500 euros ($3500 to $4500 USD) per semester for undergraduate courses and fees as high as 10,000 euros ($13,500 USD) for master's programs. Once again, this may vary from one university to the other.
