In fall 2009 the Faculty of Law of the University of Zurich launched its Double Degree Master's Programs.
In collaboration with our partner faculties, these unique programs give participants the opportunity to take part in a stimulating academic exchange and to familiarize themselves with different systems of law in a culturally diversified community.
Furthermore, the Double Degree Master's Programs offer students the opportunity to expand and further their knowledge of the Swiss legal system, the legal system of the country of the relevant partner faculty and international law. Familiarity with foreign systems of law is an important focus of these programs.
Time spent abroad and good knowledge of legal terminology represent important competitive advantages in all areas of legal work.The Double Degree Master's Programs enables students to obtain two law degrees over a period of just two years.
Currently the Faculty of Law of the University of Zurich maintains Double Degree Master's Agreements with the following partner faculties:
The Dickson Poon School of Law, King's College London (Great Britain)
Faculty of Law, Maastricht University (The Netherlands)
Faculty of Law, The University of Hong Kong (People's Republic of China)
Faculty of Law, University of Amsterdam (The Netherlands)
