Following global trends in training professionals in public and state administration, the Faculty of Law at the International Slavic University has identified the inevitable and essential need to introduce a specialized study program that offers students the opportunity to acquire extensive professional knowledge and skills in this field, as well as to apply them in practice.

Through the courses in the program, we enable students to develop a deep understanding of the legal and administrative frameworks that govern the public sector, not only in our country but also across Europe. This knowledge is crucial for those planning a career in international organizations or in domestic institutions that collaborate with European partners.

The Administrative Law and Public Administration program is designed for students who wish to continue their legal education and specialize in a specific legal profession. Upon completion of the program, students earn 60 ECTS credits.

From the elective courses, only one course is selected per semester.

Besides successfully passing the required courses, to earn the necessary number of credits, students are obligated to prepare a master’s thesis and successfully defend it, as a prerequisite for completing their studies and obtaining the professional title of Master of Laws in Administrative Law and Public Administration.
