Program Description:


The Faculty of Law at Stockholm University is the biggest Law Faculty in Sweden, both in number of researchers and in number of students. The Faculty of Law was founded in 1907 at what was then called Stockholm University College. The law program at Stockholm University has been the first-cycle program with the largest number of applicants in Sweden since the autumn of 2008.

The law program of four-and-a-half years leading to the Swedish Master of Laws Degree LL.M. is the standard law program in Sweden. The Law Program is entirely taught in Swedish. The degree is required for professions such as that of a judge, attorney at law and prosecutor. The law program at Stockholm University is a comprehensive law course. The Faculty is the only one in the country that has the professorships in Law and Information Technology and in European Integration Law – and both subjects are compulsory.
