Our Faculty of Law is responsible for the education of one fourth of the lawyers in Finland. Our new students follow the renewed degree structure, which combines multiform modes of study and independent study. Our teaching is now more practical than ever, without neglecting the theoretical foundations of the discipline.
We study law and justice comprehensively, addressing a range of different sectors of society. Our research is carried out in collaboration with the local stakeholders and international partners.
We are in constant interaction with national legislation and European law, as we are active participants in law drafting and engage in societal interaction. Moreover, our operations include organising specialist training and continuing education in collaboration with the local legal community and judicial system.
Studies in law are divided into two cycles. Our students first complete the three-year Bachelor of Laws degree before continuing to master's degree studies. The Master of Laws degree takes approximately two years to complete. The degree programmes are only offered in Finnish.
We also offer a wide range of studies in English, which are suitable for both degree and exchange students.
