School of Law has 2 English language MA programmes: IT Law and International Law nad Human Rights. Both programmes are carried out in collaboration with academics and practitioners from other countries and host both Estonian and foreign degree students.
We regularly invite foreign scholars to teach courses and/or hold ad hoc lectures at the School of Law. We also host visiting professors and guest doctoral students. In addition, all doctoral theses defended at School of Law are assessed by at least one opponent/reviewer from a foreign university or a research institution.
In turn, our academic staff is similarly involved in teaching and research activities in other countries.
For example, there is an established cooperation between the Universities of Tartu and Konstanz in organizing joint seminars on EU private law. We also have an ongoing teaching collaboration with Yerevan State University (Armenia) and Taras Shevchenko National University (Ukraine) for the master programme Human Rights and Democratization in the Caucasus.
