Law with Belgian Law
Law is concerned with the legal rules by which society is regulated and the legal system(s) in which these rules operate. It involves not only the study of legal rules, but the development of intellectual qualities such as clear, careful and independent thought; precise use of language; the capacity to analyse and solve complex problems; the ability to present arguments in a clear, reasoned and logical manner; the power to distinguish the relevant from the irrelevant; and, generally, thoroughness of inquiry.
