Civil & Private Law


Find out more information about Civil & Private Law

Civil law is the legal system that focuses on relations between individuals or organizations and the consequences of these relations. This branch of law focuses on finding solutions and compensations for victims of actions that do not follow the law of the society. Civil law mostly applies to accidents, contracts, wills, properties and other matters that often include disputes, the necessity of an agreement or an affected part.

Civil law is part of private law, along with labour, commercial, corporate and compensation law. Each of these specializations follows particular codes. A Bachelor’s degree in civil and private law (BCL) allows students to specialize in one of the fields mentioned above and earn career prospects in the government, law firms or corporations or even in a private practice.

A graduate with a Master’s degree in civil and private law can work as a solicitor who is hired to guard the interests of his or her clients. This field is financially rewarding, but it involves good research as well as interview skills.
