International Business Law

This major is one of the scientific and specialized areas in law that was created for the purpose of teaching legal issues raised in commerce and international transactions. In this program, various legal issues related to the international trade of goods and services and various rules of domestic and international law related to it are comparatively examined.

Candidates to enter the master's course in international trade law must have a law encyclopedia or other related fields from Iran's higher education centers or its equivalent from other countries, approved by competent authorities.

 

Financial and economic law

Since a major part of the financial resources and economic activities in Iran are carried out by the government and public sector, it is very necessary to be familiar with the rights related to the economic activities of this sector. In fact, in the law education system, the focus has been more on the activities of the private sector and the rules governing it, while in Iran, a large part of the economic activities are carried out by state companies and the public sector.

 

In the master's program in financial and economic law, students acquire the ability to analyze and apply these regulations and rules in controversial issues by studying and researching the country's financial and economic law issues and comparative studies of similar issues in other countries. This course is designed to teach jurisprudence and legal aspects in domestic and international financial and economic issues.

 

The program of this course, according to the approval of the Supreme Planning Council, pursues the following goals:

  • Training of specialized forces to meet the country's financial and economic legal needs;
  • Familiarization of students with domestic and international rules and regulations related to financial and economic rights of domestic and international financial and economic organizations and institutions, treaties and related international documents.

 

Candidates who wish to enter the master's program in financial and economic law must have a minimum of four and a maximum of five semesters of study (with a thesis). Candidates who wish to enter the master's program in international trade law must have a law degree or other related fields from Iran's higher education centers or its equivalent from other countries, approved by competent authorities.

 

The total number of study units in the field of financial and economic law is 32 units, including 22 compulsory units, 6 optional units, and 4 thesis units which is a total of 32 units.

 

Private Sector law

This field, which is one of the oldest areas in the field of law, is known as the main and umbrella term in examining the rules and regulations governing the legal relations of individuals. The purpose of this program is to raise the level of knowledge and analytical power of the graduates in the field of legal issues, especially civil rights and commercial law.

 

Private law is a branch of legal science that deals with the legal rules that govern the relationships of individuals with each other, including businesses, trades, family relationships and the obligations of individuals towards each other. The term private law is usually used for public law (the rules and principles governing the structure of the government and its organizations and the relations between them and the relations between the government and people). Based on this, one of the important divisions of legal knowledge is its division into two parts, private and public, which is accepted in the legal system of most countries, including Islamic countries, and is the focus of legal studies and education.

 

In this major, by raising the level of information, awareness, and legal insights of undergraduate law students in the fields related to private law, the necessary scientific background is provided for the specialized activities of the students of this field in professional jobs such as advocacy, judgment, and consulting. In addition, in this field, by teaching the research method and strengthening the power of inference and analysis of legal issues, the necessary scientific tools are also provided for those interested in pursuing this field of research and educational activities.
