International Business Law (IBL) aims at preparing highly qualified specialists in the field of international business law able to independently analyse problems of business law in the context of international business, find effective solutions to legal issues and implement them in the international business environment. The main objectives of the IBL are associated with the results/competences that must be achieved/ acquired over the course of studies.
The basic method of studies employed in IBL is the Socratic method, making studies very interactive and skills oriented. The program consists of two semesters of studies (Fall and Spring) and the third semester is devoted for the preparation of the Master Thesis. Students should study selected obligatory courses/subjects and can choose from a wide range of the elective courses, especially during the second (Spring) semester; Please, note that not all elective courses from the list are offered every year. All courses are lectured by the highest competence specialists from Lithuania and all over the world.
IBL is oriented not so much to the studies of national legal system but more to the studies of international business legal regulation principles, doctrine and legal norms. On the other hand, national component is not completely neglected but analysed more in a comparative perspective. Moreover, the IBL aims not only at the provision of special knowledge of international business legal regulation but also at giving skills necessary for solving problems in the area. Therefore, having graduated the IBL, students will be able to work in all spheres where law and international business could converge. The following main spheres of the future professional career of the graduates could be distinguished:
1. Legal profession (lawyers, judges, notaries, bailiffs (in Lithuania – only those with the BA in law);
2. Administration of bankruptcy or restructuration of companies;
3. Administration of companies (being the CEO) with the international component;
4. Legal counselling of companies.
