International Hellenic University Legal Studies

"The need for postgraduate studies in specialised areas of law has emerged in many professional fields outside the legal profession per se that require more focused legal expertise"

Legal studies at the IHU are designed to offer a thorough understanding of the theory and practice of Law in cutting edge topics through an interdisciplinary approach designed to suit both law graduates and practitioners and other professionals in related fields.

The main areas covered in the legally oriented programmes offered at the International Hellenic University are: Protection of Cultural Property and Heritage, Protection of Intellectual Property Rights, Transnational and European Law, International Arbitration and Investment Law, Mediation, Transnational Commercial Law, European Economic Law, Energy Charter Treaty, Energy Law, Business, Energy Policy, Energy and Environment and Geostrategy. Further to these, the legal aspects of other subject areas are covered in individual courses offered on other programmes of study in all three Schools.

The IHU legal programmes attract a diverse mix of recent graduates and experienced legal practitioners but also business professionals, managers, economists and engineers as well as international students from various fields, all of whom bring their varying perspectives.

Currently the following innovative postgraduate programmes are offered:

All programmes are offered in executive mode, i.e., courses are taught over long weekends twice a month. The duration of the programmes is sixteen (16) months (Master’s Dissertation included).

The programmes are also available in part-time mode over 26 months for those who cannot commit to a full-time programme either due to work commitments or other reasons.
