Welcome to Department of Law

The study of law is the study of legal rules in society and their adoption, content and application. Constantly changing, legal rules govern private as well as public action. Thus, law is always relevant and knowledge of the law is always in high demand.

The Department of Law offer one of the most modern legal educations in Sweden, where the student's own learning and development is fundamental. We perform legal research in a variety of legal areas, and because our researchers participate in teaching, current research becomes an integral part of the education. The department educates law students in smaller groups than other universities and we can therefore let our students develop in an intimate environment.
