Collaborations & Networks

Collaborations & Networks

One of the fundamental tasks of the faculty is to contribute to the development and use of legal knowledge, regionally, nationally and internationally. Collaboration with the surrounding society is therefore a priority task for both research and education and is conducted through several different channels.


The Faculty of Law collaborates and interacts with a large amount of individuals and organisations in our society. This manifests in different ways and through various channels, for instance by official opinions, alumni activities and contract education. We also have a mutual knowledge exchange between our students and practitioners of law, as the students continuously do internships at law firms, authorities and various organizations. In return, law practitioners from, amongst others, these bodys come and teach at our courses.

Our Centres, Forums and Networks

There are several centres, forums and networks connected to the Faculty of Law, working to strengthen research and education within their respective fields. Some have links to other operations inside and outside the university while others are independent units.

Below is a list of our cooperation forums in alphabetical order:

Obehörig användning av e-legitimation

För inte så länge sedan krävde nästan alla bankärenden en egenhändig signatur på papper. Utvecklingen har gått snabbt och från de första stegen med engångskoder och kod-dosor har BankID blivit en självklarhet för att identifiera sig i många olika sammanhang. Med möjligheten att identifiera sig på detta enkla sätt har också risken för missbruk ökat. I domstolspraxis och i nämndpraxis finns många exempel på att enskilda ser ut att ha tagit lån de inte känner till, och att bankkontot tömts utan att kontohavaren alls vet var pengarna hamnat eller hur det hela har gått till. 

De problem som har uppstått är av stor betydelse både för enskilda och för den finansiella branschen, samtidigt som de rättsliga frågorna som uppkommer kan vara både komplexa och svårhanterliga. Detta forskningsprojekt syftar till att, i samverkan med det omgivande samhället, identifiera frågor av stor betydelse för samhället och de aktuella branscherna och bidra med viktig forskning på detta angelägna området.

Uppsala Human Rights Research Network

The network aims to highlight and further develop existing research on legal, ethical, philosophical and political perspectives on human rights and link it to current issues such as threats to rights, the different status of rights for different groups, the theoretical basis of rights and how rights can be demanded and implemented.

To be able to do this, our researchers gather around a variety of activities. We also want to create new contacts, meeting places and conversations that promote research and in-depth study for the network's members, for the university, and for society. The idea is also to create the conditions for joint applications to establish new research environments or programmes in the longer term.
