The course in Civil Law contains the basic issues of the general part of civil law (topics 1 to 14).

Family and Inheritance law are briefly presented with some basic issues (topics 45 to 49).


Course aim

The course aims to provide students with theoretical knowledge and basic practical skills which will help them in dealing with civil and business cases. Students become familiar with basic issues of the Civil law (general part and special sections) and their practical dimension in the life of persons - natural and juridical persons.

The ultimate goal of the lectures is to prepare modern, qualified and broadly educated professionals who are familiar with representation, contract law, property and contractual rights and presentation of property claims for non-fulfillment.
