About this program

Master's Program in Global Governance Law

Legal globalization engenders processes by which different bodies of law become increasingly interconnected and interdependent, thereby crossing traditional borders. Lawyers are now required to grapple with national, international, European, and transnational laws when they apply norms.

The two-year research-oriented Master's Program in Global Governance Law (GGL) helps you develop the skills to understand and deal with the challenges of globalizing law. You complete the degree of Master of International and Comparative Law (MICL) and become an internationally-oriented professional well-qualified for a career in international organizations, legal practice, various expert positions in the public sector as well as legal academia both in Finland and abroad.
