Tallinn University | Law studies in Helsinki
The Bachelor’s programme consists of three academic years and six semesters.
The law programme offers two modules: International and EU Law and Finnish Law (only taught in Helsinki).
The programme includes compulsory practical training and in the final year of study, students participate in an interdisciplinary project and have an option to take ‘Advanced Legal Writing and Research’, a course in which students produce a scholarly research paper – similar to a thesis – on a topical legal issue. At the end of the programme, students must successfully defend the final thesis
The Helsinki programme is in block mode study form and classes are being held from Thursday to Saturday.
Besides the professors the university has a support team who are next to the students whether they need guidance with the admission process, study programme or any other issues; also with extracurricular activities such as conferences, seminars and other events. We have study counsellors who go to Helsinki every week when the studies take place. The head of the law studies in Helsinki is an American professor Philip Graves who is also teaching at Helsinki Campus.
Note! The programme is offered both in Tallinn and in Helsinki with students having the option to take courses in either Helsinki campus or Tallinn’s main campus.
