BI to Educate Lawyers

19 November 2021

In May 2021, The Norwegian parliament changed the law to allow all educational institutions to train lawyers. Previously this right was reserved for selected public universities.

Since the 1990s, BI has maintained an excellent academic community in law. We already have both a bachelor and master programme in law and business, which do not quality students to use the title lawyer.

The change in law opens the door for BI to offer an integrated bachelor and master programme that will confer the title lawyer on students.

BI’s Board has asked the administration to develop such a programme, considering the increasing importance of business law and law in general. The goal is to launch a new master programme in 2022, and a new bachelor programme in 2023 or 2024.
