Faculty of Law
Why not join us in trying to understand the fabric of contemporary society?
Department of Law
In order to respond to complex contemporary legal issues, this Department provides special courses in environmental law, intellectual property law, and consumer law. Students cultivate a practical sense of the law through courses given by law practitioners (e.g., lawyers, public servants, and tax accountants), who are actively engaged in legal work in the community.
In your first year you study foundational courses such as Constitutional Law, Civil Law, and Criminal Law.
From the second year you can register for applied and advanced courses in Commercial Law, Civil Procedure Law, and Criminal Procedure Law.
Department of Political Science
Beginning with a course called "Contemporary Society and Politics" which allows you to learn how core politics drives society, this Department provides courses which deal with priority areas in society such as "International and Area Studies," "Politics and Media Studies" and "Government and Public Policy." In seminar classes you will have the opportunity to study with teachers who may expect you to do field research, engage in debates, or visit parliament or courts. In the Centre for Research in Mass Communications, you will be able to study how newspapers are put together and presented.
In your first year you study how society functions and ways of thinking about it mainly through introductory courses on politics and public administration.
In your second year you choose courses for yourself which fit your future goals and study to acquire the knowledge and methods which form the basic content of each course.
In your third and fourth years you study advanced courses which introduce a practical and professional element. You can also take relevant courses in other Faculties and Departments which will stretch you further. And in seminar classes you will apply the knowledge you have gained by carrying out your own research projects and surveys.
