University of Law to offer courses in Vienna
Europe’s biggest law school is flying in the face of concerns about Brexit and expanding operations in the EU with a deal struck in Austria, it has announced.
The University of Law said that it is to launch a full-time LLM programme in collaboration with Webster Vienna Private University, a subsidiary of a private institution based in St Louis.
ULaw, which is based in Surrey but has branches across England, broke into the German market earlier this year. In June it struck a deal with the Gisma Business School in Berlin to offer four masters’ courses covering corporate financial management, international marketing, strategic business management, and leadership and human resource management.
For several years the university has also run a LLB programme in civil and English law in collaboration with the IE University in Madrid.
The Austria deal will involve a one-year programme for non-law graduates that will focus on conflict resolution. “English law plays a key role within the global business environment, particularly in regards to conflict resolution,” said Vassilis Konstantinou, the university’s pro-vice-chancellor for international development. “This course will therefore provide an invaluable insight into how the English legal system supports conflict resolution.”
The course will open next March and students will be taught in Vienna by ULaw academics.
