Currently, one doctoral programme is available in the Doctoral School: ”Changes of state and law in Central and Eastern Europe”. One of the aims of our doctoral programme is to contribute to the education of the next generation of academics in the area of law at a high standard. Further, in the long run, we also intend to satisfy the increasing demand for PhD degrees to be an indication of the capability for a high level of abstraction, as well as of the knowledge and talent necessary for the application of the findings of academic research. Related to the above, we intend to develop the ability of candidates for (primarily applied) research, who will then, at a later stage in their careers, be able to put their high standard of knowledge to use in the appropriate area of administration or legal practice. We develop skills in capable individuals that enable them to use empirical and other academic research methods in a targeted and full-fledged manner, and to produce book-length, original publications in specific areas of scholarship.
