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.
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.
