Education and studying

Law education provides a broad base for serving in a wide range of national and international positions, while also providing qualifications for having an impact on the fairness of society, profoundly understanding societal affairs and solving conflicts.

The Faculty of Law of the University of Helsinki is the leading Finnish institute of legal research and education with international recognition. The professors and other teachers who provide instruction in the Faculty’s degree programmes are leading experts in the field.

Graduates of the Faculty are employed in a broad spectrum of positions, from the private sector to public administration, the court system, organisations and legal practice, not forgetting researchers and the lawyers who find work outside the traditional legal professions. Legal positions are highly esteemed in society, and lawyers find work easily.
