In addition to theoretical knowledge, the Faculty’s students need practical skills and competence, as well as guidance based on experience. Would you like to contribute your competence? Contact us at oik-tiedekunta@helsinki.fi!

Our students have a chance to acquaint themselves with the work of legal professionals in practical skills courses, by assisting clients at the Helsinki Law Clinic or by participating in the Legal Tech Lab, which merges digitalisation, technology, law and service design. If you have new ideas and suggestions regarding these topics, please contact us at oik-tiedekunta@helsinki.fi!

You can also apply for the title of docent (in Finnish), which allows you to participate in the Faculty’s activities, deliver teaching, supervise students and examine theses and dissertations.

The Faculty of Law develops its continuing education in line with the principle of lifelong learning, understanding its responsibility in ensuring the professional competence of the legal profession. The Faculty’s disciplines and groups of disciplines organise continuing education events according to business principles. Education targeting cooperation partners and the general public may also be organised free of charge. The Faculty develops these activities in cooperation with employers, and the Faculty’s teachers sometimes participate as expert lecturers in continuing education events organised by other parties.

Would you like to participate in continuing education activities? Do you have ideas for seminars or courses? Are you interested in cooperating with the Faculty of Law in the field of continuing education? Contact us at oik-tiedekunta@helsinki.fi!

The Faculty’s degree programmes include practical training, which aims to support theoretical studies, offer students the opportunity to apply in practice the skills and knowledge gained at the Faculty, and provide students with the chance to build professional networks.

Students can complete their practical training by applying for one of the traineeships offered annually through the University’s subsidised job placement system or by independently obtaining a traineeship. What is more, students can choose to complete their practical training either in Finland or abroad.

Would you like to hire our talented students? By offering a traineeship to a student, you can make a significant contribution to learning and studies.  Send your traineeship announcement to the University of Helsinki Career Services at traineeships@helsinki.fi.
