History

We, Kadir Has University Law School, began our academic journey in the 2003-2004 academic year, and graduated our first students in the 2006-2007 academic year. Our mission is to educate students to be ethical advocates for justice and the rule of law and to have knowledge of fundamental legal concepts and global legal values through the supervision of our outstanding academic staff.

The Law School aims to educate lawyers who are competent in national and international law, able to analyze and interpret the law, who believe in democracy and the superiority of law, and respect human rights, who are knowledgeable and open minded, inquisitive and ready with theoretical and practical knowledge.

Kadir Has University Law School, through its connections, both domestic and foreign, seeks to enable its students to benefit from academic opportunities. For this purpose, the Law School offers its students opportunities to study at Europe’s leading universities through the Sokrates-Erasmus exchange program offered within the scope of European Union education activities. In addition, the Law School organizes research projects and trips, and also supports its students’ participation in study abroad and exchange programs as well as international panels and conferences. Throughout the academic program, the mandatory and fundamental courses relating to Turkish Law are conducted in Turkish, whereas the courses relating to foreign legal systems are conducted in English.
