SPECIALIZATION SYSTEM

The Purpose and Importance of the Specialization System

Through its new specialization system, for the first time in the academic year of 2015-2016, Kadir Has University Law School is providing law school students the opportunity to pursue specialization in one or more fields of law during their studies. From amongst a number of specializations predetermined by the faculty, the students choose at least four elective courses and eventually qualify for a certification of specialization in the relevant field by the time of their graduation.

Important Notifications about the Specialization System

Effective from the academic year of 2015-2016, the Faculty Board has determined that the elective courses are to be grouped under five different subject areas. Thus, the specialization system is applicable to students who have successfully completed the elective courses of a specialization starting from the 2015-2016 academic year.

Having completed four elective courses of one specialization track, the student can then choose to complete more/a second specialization.
