The aim of the programme is to enable students to acquire a first degree in law which would allow them to be admitted to the legal profession or to work as a legal consultant by developing skills and abilities pertinent to a lawyer, such as problem-solving, critical thinking, self-motivation and specialised knowledge of the law. The programme has been recognised by the Cypriot Legal Council for the purposes of professional recognition of the degree and other organisations. It collaborates with the University of London External Program and offers a joint LLM together with EAP in Greece and Loyola in the USA.
