- general and introductory law, including the role of the legal system in society, how to search for and interpret legal texts, judgements and other legal sources, principle Swedish legal terms and traditional legal procedure.
- various fundamental principles relating to contracts and other legal documents. These include the requirements to be a party to a contract, components of a binding contract, how agreements are made with the help of a representative and when a contract is invalid.
- purchases law, both general regulations regarding purchases law, and the special purchases related laws that contain obligatory stipulations regarding the relationship between the proprietor and the consumer.
- various regulations within property law, especially those relating to the form of purchase agreements and the extent of the seller’s responsibility for the condition of the property. Further, the student will study regulations relating to fixtures and fittings, different types of use-rights and parts of environmental law that are strongly related to property law.
- the general regulations relating to damages outside contractual agreements, including the principles of negligence, strict responsibility, damage to property, causality, contributory negligence and the particular regulations governing the employer’s responsibility for damages caused by employees and product responsibility.
- company law in a broad context, among other things questions relating to agreements between corporations and the particular regulations that determine the legal treatment of incorporated companies and other forms of companies and associations.
- the most important regulations relating to debt and promissory notes (bonds, debentures, etc.), security, limitation, and the regulations applying to the mortgage of property, company mortgages and other forms of agreements relating to credit security and how the realisation of such security occurs.
- certain regulations relating to immaterial rights, including laws regarding copyright, brands and patents, regulation of the marketing of goods and services to consumers, certain important parts of competition (trade practices) law, i.e., regulations pertaining to the preservation of sound competition between different companies on the same market.
- fundamental rulings in the area of employment (labour) law, for example the study of collective employment law, regulations of the Act on Employee Participation in Decision-making and problems relating to individual contracts of employment.
- review certain regulations pertaining to family law, especially financial questions that have to do with the division of joint property of husband and wife upon their separation and division of an estate.
