From the start of the autumn semester, the university will return to campus-based teaching, to the extent possible based on the recommendations from the Swedish health authorities on restricted groups and physical distancing. For the Department of law, this means that teaching during the autumn semester 2020 will mostly take place online. Possible exceptions can include teaching in smaller groups of maximum 20 people.

All elements of a course shall be carried out in a consistent way, i.e. if the course starts online, it will continue so throughout. Regular exams and resits will also be carried out in a similar way. More details on what applies to different courses can be found below.

Basic Courses on the Law Programme

Teaching will be mostly be web-based. There will be no lectures in lecture halls this semester.

On-campus teaching may be actual if it can be carried out in smaller groups and where it is possible to observe physical distance, e.g. for the supervision of essays or moot courts.

There will be no exams in examination halls this semester.

Specialized Courses

The courses where the language of instruction is English will be entirely web-based because they are aimed at foreign students to a greater degree than others. Other courses will be mainly web-based, with the possibility of on-campus teaching if lessons can be carried out in smaller groups where you can observe physical distance.

Exams in examination halls (for courses where Swedish is the language of instruction) can be actual following a decision from the head of department if they can be conducted in smaller groups with the necessary physical distance. Otherwise, exams will only be conducted online.

Free-standing Courses

Free-standing course will be mainly web-based but on-campus teaching can be actual if lessons can be carried out in smaller groups where you can observe physical distance.

Master Courses

All courses in our international LLMs will be carried out online this semester. In addition, consideration will be given to whether the spring semester 2021 should also be web-based for at least some of the programmes as they have few mandatory elements in the spring.

The course schedules are published on each course page in due time before the course starts. If you have questions regarding the planning of a specific course, please contact the course administrator / amanuensis by using the function email specified on the course page.
