Course number
Internship – tutorial in law
Bachelor degree or equivalent with adequate component of law
To give the student practical experience from real legal work for the purpose of integrating theory and practice. As part of the study, the student should gain insight into the legal framework governing the organization. In addition, the student should also work with legal tasks, like publications of various kinds, which are directly relevant to courses that are otherwise taught in the program.
The course requires the student to himself/herself find an internship. As a general rule the place for internship will be in the Faroe Islands but it might also be possible to choose a place abroad, that has special relevance to courses that the student has followed on Master of Law at the Fróðskaparsetur.
Learning and teaching approaches

The student must make a sufficiently satisfying work, to which director or trained lawyer, who works with the student, gives his recommendation after completion of internship. The student must also write a minimum five pages report, for Fróðskaparseturs approval, on what the student has done in the placement period.
