Frederick’s new master’s programme in public law offers knowledge in a challenging area of law which is highly sought after by the local market, the Limassol based university said.
Frederick university announced the launch of the 18-month master’s programme last week which will be available on a full time and part-time basis. This new degree will offer a specialisation in the legal fields of public law, with emphasis on the study of comparative Greek, Cypriot and European law.
“The specialisation offers an indispensable tool for all modern lawyers who want to develop in specific areas of their discipline,” says the coordinator of the programme, professor Christos Clerides, chairman of the Department of Law of Frederick University and president of the Cyprus Bar Association.
“As law is a vibrant and constantly evolving discipline, covering a wide range of areas, the new master’s degree in public law offers knowledge in a challenging area of law, such as human rights, the environment and e-government among others. This is knowledge that is highly sought after by the local market, so graduates of this degree are expected to increase their employment opportunities,” he added.
The public law master’s is aimed at lawyers or legal advisors who handle administrative, tax and environmental cases, as well as cases related to public procurement and human rights. It is also addressed to executives of institutions and organisations in the public and wider public sector. Students with this master’s degree will be able to deepen their knowledge of complex public law issues and contribute to their resolution. They will also be able to analyse and critically approach the differences between EU, Cypriot and Greek law.
The programme has been accredited by the Higher Education Quality Assurance and Accreditation Agency (HQAA) after a thorough evaluation by a panel of experts.
