The entrance requirement is a minimum of four years’ studies in law at a foreign university. Provided the foreign programme is approved by the National Agency for Higher Education it will be possible to transfer credits equivalent to two and a half years’ studies, at both undergraduate and graduate level.

A further requirement is a very good knowledge of spoken and written Swedish. A good knowledge of English is desirable.

The number of places is limited to fifteen.

Funding for the programme is governed by the same rules as for other university courses in Sweden, which means that the programme is free but that students pay themselves for course literature and other study materials. Applications containing contact details and information on previous studies in Swedish and law, as well as copies of qualification documents should be sent to:

Department of Law
Director of Studies Jenny Peters
School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg Box 650
405 30 Gothenburg

Application deadline is Wednesday 15 April 2009.
