and Environmental Law
The study programme covers the area of administrative law, focusing on substantive administrative law (especially the general part) and procedural administrative law, administrative science and judicial review of public administration. This field also includes Environmental law, focusing on general issues of environmental protection legislation and legal regulations for the protection of individual environmental elements. Students of this discipline will acquire a common but sufficiently structured public-law basis, which will allow further specialisation either in administrative law and its individual areas (components), or in environmental law and its subtopics.
The aim of the study is to provide the students with the profound theoretical basis of the field, to develop their ability to apply the acquired knowledge in practice, to achieve an overview of Global and European trends in the field, to gain motivation for their sustained expansion of knowledge as well as for the development of their creativity and teamwork abilities. The main goal of the study is to prepare the students for independent creative scientific work and to motivate them for further professional development. The programme is intended primarily for those who wish to pursue academic career and scholarly work, or for those who want to acquire deep theoretical knowledge in these legal disciplines.
