WHAT IS THE LAW SCHOOL?
Law has been around from the beginning of human history. Local and global peace can be established with a just legal system, and this is essential for a legal education. It is for this reason that one of the fundamental disciplines of higher education has always been law. A diploma from the Law School is a truly valuable diploma; however, due to the nature of a law school education, obtaining this diploma and becoming a lawyer has never been easy anywhere in the world. Every important goal requires hard work, struggle, and sacrifice. Our faculty are deeply committed to legal education and are strongly motivated to raise highly qualified new lawyers.

In addition, the English preparatory school is mandatory and, since 30% of Law School education must be in English, courses such as international law, legal writing, and comparative legal systems are also offered.
WHAT SHOULD I CONSIDER WHEN SELECTING A CAREER IN LAW?
Students who wish to select the Law School should have strong affinity with writing, speaking, reasoning, and good work and study habits. Legal work involves applying abstract principles to concrete particulars. Therefore, students who would like to study at the Law School must have the ability to apply theory to practice, and must have a strong sense of justice and a solid personal ethical grounding. Whatever the specialty they end up working in, lawyers must be competent academically, persuasive, and have an intuitively strong command of logic. As one would assume, the Law School does rely heavily on memorization, and it is not recommended that students select this major if they are not good at memorization.
WHERE CAN I WORK AFTER GRADUATING FROM THE LAW SCHOOL?
Graduates of the Law School are able to find work that is only available to law school graduates, such as:
- Forensic judge
- Notary public
In order for graduates to become judges or prosecutors, they must take and pass the written portion of the bar exam after graduating, and then pass orals, after which they must successfully complete a two-year internship.
In order for graduates to become lawyers, they must enroll in a bar association after graduating and successfully complete a one-year internship in law.
In order for graduates to become notary publics, they must obtain a law license and fill out the requisite application forms. They may then work as a notary public after a space opens up in the waiting list.
In addition, graduates may be employed as:
- Administrative judges
- Specialists or inspectors in public institutions or private institutions
- Public or private sector administrators
- Legal counsel
- Professionals in the Foreign Office or security services
THE LAW SCHOOL AT ABU
The realm of law in an increasingly globalized world involves more than memorization; our aim is to raise lawyers who can compete internationally because they can perform analysis through logic and intelligence and have the ability to answer fundamental questions. Therefore, our lawyers must be able to speak at least one foreign language with native fluency. The training provided by Antalya Bilim University's School of Foreign Languages and the high proportion of international students on our campus will make this goal easier to attain. Also, since 30% of the law classes will be in English, students will have additional support in learning English.
Students have the opportunity to meet frequently with the experienced faculty of Antalya Bilim University's Law School, and can benefit from the faculty's knowledge and advice. Students wanting to study abroad (USA, Germany, England) can also benefit from the networks and connections of faculty members who have completed their Master's degrees.
