A modern education in economics is inconceivable without a strong legal component. However, this legal component must be adapted to the needs and profile of our students. Therefore, the basic aegis in teaching all courses in the field of legal disciplines is to provide an adequate, functional, and highly customized set of legal skills necessary to any young economist. Regarding this, the Law Department of the Zagreb School of Economics and Management, within its courses provides opportunities for acquiring knowledge in areas of law relevant for young economists, giving them basic theoretical insight, but at the same time giving a strong emphasis on practical application of legal knowledge. The following courses which are carried out by the Law Department as part of ZSEM's Undergraduate Program are mandatory: Fundamentals of Law (1st year - summer semester), Principles of Commercial Law (2nd year - summer semester), the Legal Environment of Business (3rd year - winter semester), and Introduction to the European Union (4th year - winter semester). The Department also participates in the execution of ZSEM's MBA graduate program with a course entitled The Legal Environment of Business. Our department consists of eight lecturers who teach as part of ZSEM's undergraduate and graduate program.

The main objective of the Law Department of the Zagreb School of Economics and Management is to enable students to acquire basic theoretical knowledge in the field of law which will be applicable during their further education at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and in practical business situations after graduation. Students will study basic and additional literature in the field of law and will thus acquire the necessary knowledge that will help them in solving exams and final tests and in preparing individual and group projects. Students will be familiar with the basic institutions of real, mandatory, commercial and company law and other important topics in the field of law.
