Department name and general information on the department

Department for Business Law

Business law has been taught at the University of Sarajevo ever since its establishment. Department for Business Law at the School of Economics and Business in Sarajevo was founded in 2002. The reason for its establishment as well as the purpose of its being lies in the fact that not a single form of organised business dealings, be it on a local, state or international level, cannot be carried out outside the legal system. Understanding and implementation of policies in Economics, in the broadest sense of a word, and all their subject-matter presupposes their close relationship with Business Law, both in theory and in practice. Educating future professionals in Economics for the current and future needs of society requires knowledge from diverse areas of law, and, particularly, in the area of Business Law.
