General Objectives

FREDERICK University, having solidified a long and well-recognised presence in the field of Cyprus Higher Education, leverages its accumulated experience and the need for dynamic evolution by proceeding in the establishment of a Department of Law.

Its primary goal is to provide students with a thorough and high-quality education in the field of law by harmoniously integrating them in the apprenticeship of the science of law: A systematised body of knowledge that interprets the law in force in a given society as regulatory rules of the social life of people.

The teaching of courses is carried out using various educational institutions and teaching methods, introducing students to the relevant branches of law while encouraging them, at the same time, to refer to specific scientific literature and jurisprudence.
