To begin with, the course addresses areas of fundamental Swedish private law such as contracts, sales and torts.

The latter part of the course focuses only on Swedish private real estate law, in other words, the Swedish Land Code's regulations concerning fixtures, the conveyance of rights of use (rent, servitudes and leases), purchases, defects in real estate as well as mortgage deeds. An important part of the course is general training with respect to legal skills. The students are to be able to search in and use the primary legal sources: legislation, case law and legislative preparatory works. The ability to present and understand legal reasoning is developed based on this.

The course is based om lectures and seminars. The student's activity - through presentations, discussion and problem-solvning - is important for the understanding and ability to solve questions relating to private and real estate law.
