Welcome to the Faculty of Law of the International University of Sarajevo!

Bachelor of Arts in Law
Upon completing the baccalaureate degree, students will acquire basic knowledge of legal sciences as well as the necessary legal skills for admission into and successful completion of advanced legal studies. Graduates who, at this stage, choose to go into the work world, rather than continue their legal education, would have obtained the professional skills—including internships in government agencies and private organizations while at FLW—that they need to secure employment in the public or private sectors. Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) needs educated international legal experts who think and are able to work in English, the official language of the EU and the language of global politics and commerce. Therefore, along with the possibilities for practical experience in law, the main advantage for FLW graduates from BiH flowing from their IUS education is the benefit of lessons conducted in English, the medium of instruction at this university.
Depending on progress with the thesis, the programs last about two semesters or one academic year. In the first semester, students must register for and complete five courses, three of which are required and two of which are an elective. In the second semester, students must register for and complete one required courses, plus the thesis.
