Knowledge Exchange and Collaboration

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.
