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 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.
