Who are we?

As the oldest Faculty of Law in the Nordic countries it existed already when Uppsala University was founded in 1477. The activities at the Faculty embrace a wide range of research areas and specializations with an expanded and well reputable undergraduate and doctoral education.


Faculty in brief

The Faculty has one department, the Department of Law. In total over 200 people work at the Department, of which over 100 are scholars and teachers. In addition there are about 60 doctoral students and other coworkers who all operate from centrally located premises.

Both the research and the education at Juridicum have expanded and strengthened over the years, and today there are substantial teaching and research activities within a wide range of subjects.

The strong research environment as well as extensive international cooperation are important elements for the popular teaching model which has made the law programme at Uppsala one of Scandinavia's most popular programmes. Since a number of years the undergraduate education has gradually expanded and currently has two annual intakes. Approximately 2,000 students are studying at the undergraduate level.

The legal research at the Faculty of Law in Uppsala is conducted within 15 fields of research and nine private law subfields. The research is currently in a very expansive and creative phase. Over the last few years new scholars have been recruited and more areas of research have been developed and strengthened.

It is thanks to the prominent scholars who participate in the teaching that makes it a first class programme and one of Scandinavia’s most popular education. The research also benefits from the input and critical questioning provided by the students.
