Degree programme objectives

Private international law, including its wider basis which is international procedural law and international commercial law, belong to the system of the national legal order. Nevertheless, in its direction it extends the boundaries of the national legal orders. The overlap is given by both sources of legal regulation, international nature of science of private international law and factual overlap of legal relations which are subject of its regulation. The objective of the doctoral study in the area of private international law and international commercial law is to acquire the legal theoretical knowledge in this discipline , as well as to learn the methods and skills of scientific work. A wider basis of the field of study constitutes the preparation for scientific and pedagogical works, language preparation and the basic knowledge over development of other legal disciplines. The study is intended particularly for those who want to engage in academic career and scientific work in the discipline, work in international organizations, abroad, work in international law firms, alternatively for those who want to acquire the deeper theoretical knowledge from the discipline. The crucial themes of the discipline head into the areas of conflict of laws, direct rules, procedural law, arbitration law and international business law.
