The Faculty of Law

The Faculty of Law at the University of Lapland was established in 1979.

Teaching at the Faculty of Law is based on reasearch. 

Faculty of Law, one of three faculties nationally, supports its broad-based educational mission through research in all of the traditional fields within the discipline as well as in the novel specialisations of Legal Cultures and Linguistics, Legal Informatics and Space Law.

The Faculty works in close cooperation with courts, other law faculties in Finland and its counterparts internationally.

The Faculty offers a number of courses and lectures in English. There are annually 40-50 incoming exchange students and about the same number of outgoing students.

The Faculty of Law has a 9-member Faculty Council that is elected every other year. Professors select one-third of the members from among themselves; teachers, researchers, and other personnel one-third; and students the remaining third.

The Faculty Council selects a dean for the term of the council. The dean directs, supervises, and develops faculty activities and functions as the council chair.

The Faculty Office attends to personnel employment issues, enters study attainments into the credit record, updates the study guides, and administers degree awarding and student selection.
