Law Studies

A BSc or Bachelor of Science is an undergraduate degree that usually takes three to five years.  During this course of study, students can learn general and specialized skills that are helpful for future education or work opportunities.

Depending on one’s preferences, becoming a professional in law and regulations may lead one to a number of different subdivisions. Among the most popular of these specializations are commercial law, regulatory theory and international relations.

Europe is, by convention, one of the world's seven continents. Comprising the western most point of Eurasia, Europe is usually divided from Asia by the watershed divides of the Ural and Caucasus Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian and Black Seas, and the waterways connecting the Black and Aegean Seas.
