The undergraduate education of Law entails a curriculum of 240 ECTS credits in 4-year normal period of study, which consists of 8 semesters. At the Department, like the other departments at our university, 1 ECTS is equivalent to 30 hours of student involvement per semester.
The main objective of the Department is to educate and train law students; who fit in knowledge-based times complying with relations of production in the present information society; who, as practitioners of law, integrate into society with their law education which embraces universal values and instills how to learn afterwards; who, with their profession and professional identity as law practitioners, are at the forefront of social development, beyond being a member of the ideal information society.
Today’s world with growing complexity of international relations brings out the need for law students who make the best of foreign languages in their academic and professional lives and can resolve and settle legal disputes amicably. The Faculty of Law at Istanbul Sabahattin Zaim University, in order to meet the aforementioned need, aims to educate law students who can deal with national and international legal questions and disputes, and who have the knowledge, skills and competencies for settlement of such legal disputes. Thus, the Department brought a program into being so that students, in addition to acquainting oneself with theoretical knowledge and having a good grasp of legal methodology, can attain the ability of analytical thinking.


The purpose of our Faculty is to equip our students with the skills of legal thinking; with the ability to bring legal and just solutions for any existing and future legal issues; and with the awareness of working for the service of the society. The IZU Faculty of Law, in line with the same core vision of our university, which set out to become a research university, aims to build the faculty as an educational research centre in that regard, thus to assure law to prevail in all areas of life. We particularly give importance to transferring the accumulated knowledge of our age and legal methodology to our students, starting from the legal heritage of our geography and civilization.


To build the necessary infrastructure to educate well-informed and well-equipped law students to meet the need of our country. Within the context of understanding the historical heritage, Ottoman language is of great importance.
