The Law School is pleased to announce the launch of a new double degree programme in partnership with the renowned Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, Boston. Much like the HSG, The Fletcher School takes an interdisciplinary approach to education and has an international focus.
Students in the DD programme will earn a LL.M from The Fletcher School and a master's degree from HSG (MLaw, MLE or MIL). For HSG students, the DD takes two years (three semesters at HSG and one semester at Fletcher).
This unique programme gives master's-level students the opportunity to study in two different legal systems. They benefit from access to two outstanding programmes and the chance to examine matters of international law from both US and Swiss perspectives.
Our legal studies courses provide an excellent foundation for a successful career.Students are offered ideal conditions for developing their talents and interests as well as learning the skills required for legal practice.
We offer ideal study opportunities for law students. We are also committed to research and further education.
Degree courses cover the fields of private, commercial and business law, as well as public law.
