About the Program

Law and justice for a society are as important as the air they breathe; as we do not realize how we breathe while everything is normal, the rule of law functions in a similar sense, but we feel its existence and trust. The existence and continuity of the state of law is closely related to the existence of honest, virtuous and respectable jurists who are well-acquainted with the law, adhere to it wholeheartedly and never waver from justice. We aim to educate students who are happy with accumulating knowledge, and their professions while doing this. The Associate Degree Program in Justice involves the principle of life and self-learning in the knowledge of the honesty, justice and ethics required by the legal profession, which has adopted indispensable principles such as democracy, secularism, social state and rule of law, and can solve simple legal problems with the basic concepts of law and methodology, and service personnel.
