For the benefit of society

The mission of the Faculty of Law is to produce qualified, ethically responsible legal professionals for both the Finnish and international labour markets through internationally high-quality research and research-based teaching. In addition to Finnish and Swedish language degree programmes, the Faculty houses the Master’s Programme in International Business Law. In addition to conducting research in traditional disciplines (such as private law, criminal and procedural law, international and EU law, and administrative law), the Faculty often collaborates with researchers from other fields in research on specific themes, such as globalisation, digitalisation and sustainable development.

Societal impact

The Faculty engages with society through its core mission of legal education and research. When developing our operations, we take into account the hopes and expectations of society at large. The Faculty’s alumni are an important resource, who are offered many types of alumni activities. The Faculty has an advisory committee led by the dean and consisting of Faculty alumni and stakeholder representatives. The Faculty’s significant fundraising efforts are based on public engagement.
