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 Master’s Programmes in International Business Law and in Global Governance 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.
Law studies provide qualifications for working in a diverse range of positions and having an impact on the fairness of society.
The Faculty's operations are based on high-quality and broad-based legal research.
