Doctoral Schools

Doctoral School, Law and Political Sciences
Doctoral programmes of law began at the Faculty in 1993. Ever since its outset, training has been accredited to cover all areas of law and political sciences, and for some time that was unique among doctoral schools of law in Hungary. Doctoral training is based on and is continuation of the undivided Juris Doctor training. In 1998 an assessment of the activities of Faculty by the Hungarian Higher Education Accreditation Committee (HAC) gave excellent qualification to doctoral training. Doctoral students have to attend scholarly lectures, whose syllabus is approved by the Doctoral Council of the Faculty. In addition, doctoral students have to fulfil personalized tasks that are defined by their instructors who function as consultants and the department that is charge of training programme concerned.
The number of students receiving doctoral training has sharply increased in recent years. Presently some 100 to 110 persons apply to such programmes yearly.
