The Faculty of Law has a strong and distinct international profile both in education and
in research. Our faculty is an inspiring and lively place where enthusiastic and inquisitive
researchers seek to find answers to the pressing legal issues of today in a multidisciplinary
and interdisciplinary context.


Research involves studying both institutional and substantive developments in the process
of Europeanisation and globalisation and the role of the national legal order therein.

What makes doing research at our faculty so unique?

Researchers are able to flourish in the faculty’s vibrant academic community. They develop their own research projects, within the contours set by the faculty’s research programme.

Faculty in Focus

A lot can happen in a year. Our Faculty in Focus series highlights some of the most surprising, inspiring and important activities in the field of education, research and events at our faculty from 2023.

The Helga Pedersen Moot Court Competition team shares their story about winning this prestigious event, and why mooting competitions are so valuable for future lawyers. Next, we sat down with Andrea Parziale, whose research project aimed to make damages in Europe more equal. Also, a familiar face at our faculty, Fons Coomans, returned to his former workplace to talk about the importance of human rights for future generations. 

Dive into the fascinating world of our faculty's research, education, and events!
