Additional programmes

Doctoral studies (LL.D.)

Independent research and critical analysis lie at the heart of doctoral studies. Prospective candidates begin by proposing their own projects.

Juristexamen (Swedish Master’s of Laws) - in Swedish only

Stockholm University offers two tracts to becoming a lawyer practicing in Sweden. The most common track takes 4.5 years. There is a special track reserved for people who already hold a law degree from countries outside Europe and takes 2 years. Both require a high level of proficiency in Swedish.
