Part of the University of Helsinki, a top-quality multidisciplinary European university, the Faculty of Law is the leading Finnish provider of legal education.

The Faculty’s operations emphasise teaching based on high-quality, topical research. The Faculty aims to educate students for demanding national and international duties that call for legal expertise. In its teaching, the Faculty stresses the development of skills needed to understand and solve legal problems, as well as a broad range of argumentation and interaction skills.

The Faculty cooperates closely with society to provide diverse expert and education services. The Faculty’s graduates find employment in various sectors, including private industry and trade, public administration, the court system, organisations and law firms – not to mention research and professions other than those traditionally opted for by legal experts.

The Faculty’s administration is handled by the Faculty Council and dean. The operations are managed and supervised by the dean or, should the dean be absent, by the vice-dean.
