SPECIFIC COMPETENCIES of the "Business Law" study program derive from the teaching modules of the study core in the field of business law, which include knowledge of the business, normative, legal, institutional and social environment so that students can use the respective legal and other instruments, understanding the parameters of business organization, administrative environment and identifying the impact of these elements on the legal status, organization and institutional construction of their economic and business organizations and associations.
Students are trained to > understand the details of legal institutes and administrative functions, types of legal affairs and administrative operations, specificities of different types and sizes of business organizations, public bodies, organizations and institutions, administrative and administrative affairs, different sectors of the economy and administration and to connect these factors with the key business parameters of business entities. Competences of analysis, synthesis and critical reflection in business, legal, administrative, administrative and managerial areas enable the successful preparation and management of legal aspects of business operations, legal acts, administration, planning, control and audit of market operations and administrative organization.
Students also acquire basic competencies in secondary areas that are indirectly related to business logistics, administrative process and the process of normative and legal construction, such as: forwarding, administrative business, nomotechnics, rhetoric, legal documentary, technology and engineering applied in business, legal and administrative fields, understanding the technological background of administrative processes and links to public opinion research, technological forecasting, social and marketing psychology and communication, and statistical methods and tools.
The goals of the "Business Law" study program largely correspond to the goals of the "General Law" study program. Students of "Business Law" acquire the basic competencies of legal studies in key historical, theoretical, civil-law and criminal-law areas. However, the focus of these studies is on the field of commercial and corporate law, and international commercial law. Students also get competencies that students of general law do not possess, related to business economics, finance, commercial contracts, stock exchanges, securities. Graduates in this field should possess sufficient knowledge and competence to be able to participate equally in the creation, organization and supervision of the business process and to assume any managerial functions, including the functions of directors within the framework of their economic entities. Business law students are trained to take on broker jobs after the usual training. intermediary in securities trade.
Other goals that are identical to the goals of common law are:
- Establishment of a competent institution of legal sciences based on the curricula and programs of modern law studies, promotion of the rule of law, human rights, international legal norms, legal foundations of the modern market economy, entrepreneurial and administrative management,
- The curriculum should provide a pragmatic and modern approach to legal science, modularly developed and redesigned curricula adapted to reform studies focused on the areas of application of legal knowledge and legal practice, international law, business economics and business law, applied political studies, communication studies, organizational sciences. , business informatics and documentary studies, and modern management methods;
- Implementation of a modern didactic approach of interactive dialogue-teaching and a mentor-supported study process, which combines basic studies with legal clinics, modular teaching, practical engagement of students and student research papers.
- Hiring teaching staff with competencies that will enable pedagogical mobilization and high motivation of students, as a basis for high passing rates and educational achievements of students.
- The design of the curriculum and schedule enables "finalization" already after the first cycle of three-year studies, i.e. qualification for a specific job and competitiveness on the labor market, which implies:
- training first-cycle students for paralegal jobs,
- providing theoretical and professional foundations for continuing studies,
- adequate workload of students considering the high work intensity of three-year studies,
- a flexible plan and program that is appropriate to the needs of students and the demands of the labor market.
- A better balance of theoretical teaching and practical skills, which presupposes a greater connection with practice, especially business practice;
- Expanding the range of specialist and postgraduate studies (which achieves competitiveness, given that classical legal studies are largely unified).
European profiling of legal studies is of particular importance. which presupposes the introduction of a European and comparative legal component in all teaching programs.
An essential element of the social credibility and competitiveness of legal studies is the possibility for students to acquire practical knowledge and skills. Legal clinics, practicums, workshops, internships and other forms of practical teaching are represented more and more effectively than in a classic state legal study with the appropriate involvement of experts from practice, but also the involvement of students in real practice.
The true measure of diversification and differentiation of teaching subjects implies a far greater number of elective subjects, which will not violate the unity of the legal profession ensured through key contents within the framework of compulsory teaching subjects.
Learning outcomes should give students the skills to formulate:
- Questions related to the background of legal aspects of business;
- Research questions;
- Dispute/problem resolution methodology;
- Analysis of disputes
- Conclusions related to the elaboration of legal aspects of business;
- Recommendations related to resolving disputes/problems
- Sources for further elaboration of the legal basis of the problem;
- Orchestrating and harmonizing the teams that solve the problem or mediate the parties in dispute;
- Presentation of the dispute/problem and communication related to the dispute;
Based on the educational profile of a law graduate and a law graduate specializing in the fields of business law in the field of graduate and postgraduate studies, the University has created a large number of operational and applied specializations / sub-specializations, which qualify students for legal, administrative, management and consulting jobs in the public sector and in the corporate sector. sector, banks, specialized marketing agencies, investment funds, consulting and representative agencies, local and state administration bodies, public institutions, non-governmental and non-profit organizations, political organizations and agencies dealing with public relations and administration bodies.
Graduate students and graduate students-specialists in the study program of business law are qualified for prestigious professions and jobs:
- a/ in the field of liberal professions:
consultants and advisors for legal aid and legal representation, notaries and notary trainees, administrators in offices and agencies
- b/ in the field of economy:
