This course introduces students to the world of law, legal systems and legal scholarship. Its objective is to enable students with little to no knowledge of law to gain understanding of basic legal concepts such as the rule of law or the functions of courts and parliaments. It introduces students to the idea that law and lawyers work and function in a globalized environment, and the implications of that on 21st lawyering. In addition, students will gain knowledge of how to conduct high level research in law, both on domestic and international matters. The course will also dedicate some times to develop legal writing techniques, in order to prepare students to their studies and for their life in practice.
