Dissertation Uzh Recht

Courses offered by the Faculty of Law include lectures, exercises, discussions, colloquia, tutorials and seminars. Lecture notes are available at the Student Store Centre for most lectures and exercises at the beginning of the semester.


A lecture is a teaching method conducted by a lecturer in which an aspect of law is systematically examined. Lectures form the foundation and point of departure when dealing with a topic.


The purpose of exercises is the development of knowledge and skills gained in a field, as well as applying abstract concepts to concrete facts by working on problems derived from practical situations. Attending an exercise only makes sense when you are thoroughly prepared and able to take active part in discussions.

Bachelor’s Theses (seminars)

Bachelor’s theses are used to apply an academic approach to defined problems within a specialized field. Each semester, about ten to twenty seminars (sometimes organized as block courses lasting several days) are offered in various fields. Participation in a seminar is based on a paper about a specific topic. During a seminar, you will be expected to participate actively and possibly to prepare a presentation on the topic under consideration.

Registration for the seminars takes place in the previous semester in each case. Students must therefore register in the autumn semester for a seminar in the spring semester, and in the spring semester for a seminar in the autumn semester.
Bachelor's dissertations are usually written in the previous semester and then presented and discussed in a seminar in the following semester.

The current range is published under this Link.

Master's Theses

There are two options for writing a Master’s thesis. A Master’s thesis may be agreed on with the lecturer at any time and independently of a Master’s module, or it may be written as part of a seminar.

Further information is available in the information sheet on Master’s theses.

The Master’s thesis agreement must be completed in full for each Master’s thesis.
