Dean's Message

Prof. Dr. Bertil Emrah Oder

Koç University Law School was inaugurated in 2003. Yet, it quickly became an internationally reputable institution in legal education and research. This success is truly deserved. Our education policy is grounded on the unity of teaching and research. Our highly esteemed scholarly and professional team is the main source of cutting-edge legal education and research at the Law School. Since the opportunity to gain fundamental and new knowledge from a body of competent research scholars and practitioners meets our students’ high potential and desire for self-improvement, classes transform into a professional learning experience. This experience is consolidated by “innovative legal teaching” and “peer support” initiatives run in cooperation with our Learning and Teaching Center. Evocable and interrelated learning is our priority in teaching. As an indispensable part of our institutional culture, regular academic discussions and administrative surveys aim at raising the quality of legal education and complying with high standards at national and international scale.

I have been working on subjects of legal value for 35 years of my career; however, it was Koç University Law School which has helped me understand the essence and soul of the Law and the concept of Justice, which I believe to be the foundation of everything. For that, I give my thanks to the Koç University Law Faculty, Dean Prof. Dr. Bertil Emrah Oder, all my professors, faculty members and young lawyers I have been working together with....

Selçuk Artut
LL.M in Public Law Graduate

The LLM program in Koç University has been the most thought-provoking personal and professional experience I ever had. I chose to apply here for an LLM in Public Law because of wide-reaching reputation. Koç University was the ideal institution for my postgraduate studies because it constantly adapts its academic approach. Moreover, the Law School has an excellent research center for public international law (Global Center for Public Law), a multicultural community, and flexible curricula to encourage engagement in extracurricular academic activities....

When I take a look at the education I received at Koc University Law School for the past four years, I undoubtedly believe that I have received the best legal education in Türkiye. The impressions I got from friends enrolled at other distinguished law schools in Istanbul and across Türkiye convinced me that Koc University Law School stood out among its peers, especially in the following areas: (i) various opportunities allowing close cooperation between students and professors who are all distinguished figures in their areas of study, and especially the work-study program...

Cem Tecimer
Koç Law School Alumni, 2016

The most important advantage of graduating from Koc University Law School is the question, inquire and criticism-based law education system rather than the memorization-based one. In addition to this, the curriculum of the Law School including the courses in the comparative and international areas of law, besides Turkish law oriented courses provides the privilege to its graduates. Within this scope, as a result of all the knowledge that I gained in my law education, I had the possibility to specialize in any areas of law....
