Since the 2003-2004 academic year , Atılım University, Faculty of Law continues to offer legal education. Our students applying from all over this country are provided legal education by the experienced, invaluable and ideally qualifed academic staff whose main goal is to convey their knowledge to younger generations. Continuing in the footsteps of success to meet our goals, very knowledgeable and wellqualifİed young academic staff are also involved in the teaching law programme as senior lecturers.
The main aim behind the logic of the education and training in law does not mean students should be loaded with detailed knowledge. Instead, the main purpose is to educate and train our students to enhance their abilities to think systematically in order to reach the concrete information to be able to communicate. The initiatives for a lawyer should be virtuous, tolerant, broad-minded, and morally integrated lawyers having received the specific knowledge focusing on the study of law, in particular the sense of humaniterianism is also one of the most important traits and dispositions for a lawyer.
As many countries, Turkey is influenced by the growing need for the regulations to standardize legal education to a level where an innovative harmonization of legal education on both European Union and global scales is realized. Accordingly, the technological improvements and national requirements have affected the content of legal education to a great extent. To envisage to reach a knowledgeable society requires constant critical judgement on the content of the legal education. This means that we must be prepared to look outward and to respond to the new realities of our global society to create innovations for the legal education in accordance with the idea of “ constitutional state”.
To educate legal professionals who maintain justice which forms the primary foundation for the state itself presents vital importance. Keeping this in mind, our Faculty will continue to keep deepening advanced programs of study in law to deliever an outstanding legal education.
