The basic objective of this programme is to train jurists, lawyers and legal experts to develop their abilities to define and analyse new legal matters which are occurring in the global environment and to comprehend the core legal rules as well as the evolution of the Law itself. The aim of this course is to enable our students who attend both programmes to understand the justifications, principals, procedures, and verdicts which constitute the basis of the discipline of law by means of comprehensive research and verification.
The priority of the programmes is to improve the talents of our students so that they can evaluate and solve those legal problems which they are likely to encounter in accordance with the logical and legal principals in the fields of National and International Trade Law, Capital Markets Law, Commercial Law, Competition Law, Intellectual Property Law, Consumer Law, Code of Obligations and types of Modern Contracts at issue.
Its aim is to foster professional development in jurists who will be able to make a meaningful contribution to the changing legal profession in both the national and international arenas. Therefore, our country will gain some new jurists who will mould the legal profession by following all of the changes in the field of law. In this respect, those who prepare the thesis and term papers as part of the Private Law Masters Programme with Thesis will acquire the ability to assess and interpret evolving legal matters with competence and a knowledgeable background. Those students who attend the Private Law Masters without Thesis will become proficient in such matters as well.
Structure of the Law
As is customary, this programme will be implemented in two ways:
- The Programme with Thesis is composed of 7 lessons for 21 credits, all of which are elective courses, a seminar and the Masters Thesis.
- The Programme without thesis is composed of a total of 10 lessons for 30 credits, all of which are elective courses which also include half term papers (on the condition that those students who are not graduates of the Law faculty have to take compulsory preparation courses if they haven’t previously completed such courses).
- The programme is designed to provide our students with the utmost choices in a variety of fields. All of the courses are elective and issues regarding the daily matters concerning the classical fields of private law are dealt with comprehensively.
The programme is conducted exclusively in Turkish. The students are free to arrange and adjust their pace and tempo according to their needs. Those students who work are encouraged to arrange and modify their time tables according to their needs. Although students are expected to complete the Private Law Masters Programme with Thesis in 4 terms and those students who attend the Private Law Masters Programme without Thesis in 3 Terms, it is possible to extend the duration of their courses. The time table of those courses will generally be arranged on weekdays from 19:00 to 22:00.
