The Faculty of Law provides excellent education. Lawyers must possess all of the relevant skills: they can competently and creatively handle matters pertaining to national, European and international law, as well as comparative law and all of its myriad interactions. Resolution skills and language proficiency, both in the mother tongue and in English, are essential.
Our research meets international standards and focuses on the Europeanisation and internationalisation of the legal profession. It concentrates on themes such as European common law, globalisation of law and civil rights.
Besides the proven Problem-Based Learning, where you solve problems together with your fellow students, we always keep an eye on new education methods. For example we are experimenting with Google Glass in our moort court training sessions. Students get tips and tricks from the tutor via Glass.
