Welcome to IUS Faculty of Law – a vibrant and inspiring environment to study law and prepare for a phenomenal career
The Faculty of Law (FLW) is one of five faculties at the International University of Sarajevo (IUS). It was established in 2015 with the mission of providing legal education to the highest possible standards in line with the Bologna system. It is currently available in the 1st and 2nd study cycles. FLW provides education in an environment aligned with the IUS tradition of being the best private university in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the region, and a model university for the interweaving of liberal education and fundamental knowledge with practical education and impact on societal and world problems.
FLW distinguishes itself from other faculties of law/legal sciences/law programs in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Balkans and Turkey, primarily by teaching in English. Among 23 faculties of law/legal sciences/law programs in Bosnia and Herzegovina, FLW is one of the two faculties that offer legal education in English language. Among 83 faculties of law in Turkey, there is no faculty providing legal education only in English.

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.
