1. In the first step students are requested to contact the instructor under the supervision of which they wish to conduct their LL.M. dissertation. The supervisor shall be a faculty member and part of the academic staff of the LL.M. in International and European Legal Studies. Students may choose their supervisor from the teaching staff of both LL.M. courses. In certain cases, students are provided with a list of suggested topics. In all other cases, the selection of the topic and the structure of the thesis is agreed between the supervisor and the student. 

2. Once the students have agreed with the supervisor on the topic of the dissertation, they must fill, sign and send the attached form (in pdf format) until Monday, 26 April 2021 (noon). The form must be sent to the following address: kserdaris[at]law.uoa[dot]gr

3. Upon submission of the relevant forms, the steering committee will meet in a plenary session in order to approve the topic of the dissertation and appoint the members of the academic committee.
