The Master Programme in Law and Information Technology offers law graduates the possibility of developing their proficiency in the combined fields of law and information technology.
The courses included in the Programme consist of seminars, classes, practical assignments, and study visits to law firms, companies and authorities specialised in the use of IT in law. Some activities take place in the computer laboratories of the Law Faculty. The participants enjoy the additional privilege of gaining the European Computer Driving Licence the worlds leading IT skills certification programme.
The aim of the courses included in the Programme is to enable the students to develop the skills necessary for their future work as legal practitioners or researchers in the chosen field. This is achieved by teaching the students various ways in which to identify problems and generate solutions. Issues of practical character are thus interwoven with a scholastic approach to legal problems and with practical exercises, using various legal IT tools. This approach requires active participation on the part of the students, for example, by way of completing various IT-related tasks and submitting papers.
The law programme of four-and-a-half years leading to the Swedish Master of Laws Degree (Juristexamen) is the standard law programme in Sweden. The degree is required for professions such as that of a judge, attorney at law and prosecutor.
The law programme 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.
The Faculty is furthermore collaborating with departments within other faculties at Stockholm University and the range of courses has attracted students from the faculties of humanities, natural and social sciences.
A considerable part of teaching is carried out in the form of seminars and classes of not more than 35 students. This encourages the students to take an active part in the classroom activities. Most subjects also include some practical elements, such as a short essay or simulated proceedings (moot court) conducted in an authentically furnished moot court room. The two computer rooms possessed by the Faculty are in frequent use, where information on Swedish and European cases, legislation and literature can easily be accessed.
The standard law programme consists of 20 compulsory courses taught over a period of seven terms. During their last year, before completing their thesis under the supervision of a Professor, the student can choose from 60 specialized courses, 15 of which are offered in English and open to both foreign exchange and Swedish law students. Approximately one quarter of these specialized courses, are given in English. Foreign exchange students who are proficient in Swedish may also apply to attend the courses taught in Swedish. Almost every course ends with a written examination. The grading scale is divided into four levels: Very Good (AB), Good (Ba), Satisfactory (B) and Fail (U). There is no final examination for the Swedish LL M Degree, but students have to obtain at least grade B in all the subjects in order to be awarded the degree. On the other hand, there are unlimited possibilities of re-examination for students who have failed an exam.
