The Institute of Law and Technology of Kazimieras Simonavicius University (KSU) is the department with the longest history at KSU. In 2003 – 2011, the Institute operated as Vilnius Academy of Business Law and in 2012 became part of KSU. At the moment, the Institute organises integrated Master of Law studies of one year and a half duration (granting the qualifying degree of Master of Law).
The Institute of Law and Technology promotes academic leadership, openness and flexibility, when the core of the academic staff is formed according to the study program being developed or implemented. One of the most important values of the Institute of Law and Technology is openness to changes.
The law study program is inseparable from the social environment, it directly reflects the economic, political and cultural development of society, therefore both law and the concepts of justice and legality arise from social relations, the peculiarities of their formation and the results created by these relations.
Generally, law studies are designed to prepare qualified legal professionals capable to work in all legal institutions, i.e. to be a judge, lawyer, notary, bailiff and engage in other legal activities.
A person qualified as a lawyer must be socially responsible – not only the success of a specific activity, but also the value orientation of society itself, based on the pursuit of justice, honesty, legality, equality, and respect for people, directly depends on his professional knowledge, available abilities, personal qualities, value system, recognition of the rule of law and compliance with the law. Today’s lawyer is subject to extremely high ethical requirements, next to which his socially responsible behaviour and responsibility to society are equally important.
