About the Programme
Like most academic degrees, law program at FU starts with foundation and compulsory core courses. Teaching is through a combination of lectures, seminars, group work, presentations and ‘mooting sessions’ – practical law training in a courtroom setting to help students master important legal skills such as research and analysis, public speaking and argument formation.
Most students will choose law because they are interested in pursuing a career in the legal profession. They can either choose to practice in the court of justice or can choose to become judge to ensure justice; they can even choose to spread their legal knowledge by choosing the academic profession. They can engage themselves in in-house practice, counselling and consultancy; join multi-national corporations in their legal team, and serve other institutions using their legal skill, knowledge and capacity. A law degree can prepare someone for working at the highest levels – many world leaders are lawyers including Barack Obama, Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Tony Blair, Margaret Thatcher etc. One can also choose a different career after studying law.
