    After successfully completing his/her studies the graduate is able to:

    • use general knowledge about the legal regulation of business
    • explain the differences between both types of legal regulation including variety of sanctions
    • understand the legal and factual requirements of entrepreneurship

    • solve basic legal issues connected with the entrepreneurship and the operation of business enterprise
    • decide whether there is a need of assistance of a lawyer or not.
  • Occupational Profiles of Graduates

    The broader curriculum will increase the employability of graduates in the labor market if a secure orientation in the legal regulation of entrepreneurial activities is required, whether under private law (negotiation, liability, business conduct, unfair competition issues), but also in the context of public regulation (administrative law, public procurement, environmental protection, financial law and partly also criminal law). Therefore, the possibilities are not limited to the private sector.

  • Practical Training

    Practical training is not a compulsory part of the curriculum.

  • Goals of Theses

    The formal attributes of the bachelor's theses are regulated by the Dean's Directive No. 7/2012 On the Study in the Bachelor's and Master's Degree Programs and by the Dean's Directive No. 4/2013 On the citation of the documents used in the papers submitted at the MU PrF.

    The standard extent of bachelor's thesis is 35 pages. The bachelor thesis is focused on solving more practical diploma tasks, typically on commented contract templates, sample submissions with analysis of controversial issues, analysis of specific cases or creation of tutorials for practice without the need for a comprehensive solution. The outcome of the theses are often specific recommendations on the wording of the contract text, taking into account advantages and disadvantages from the point of view of the parties, more sophisticated practical instructions (e.g. the issue of a specific security in steps) or analysis of specific cases of high relevance for further practice.

  • Access to Further Studies

    After completion of the Bachelor's studies, it is possible to continue further studies in the Master's degree follow-up programme Public Administration (after satisfying the admission requirements).
