Studying at the Faculty of Law
Legal education and research at Lund University are committed to providing an environment where education and research cross-fertilise.
The Faculty of Law aspires to expand and maintain its role as an international player in legal scholarship, second to none in a growing number of areas. Our legal education is based on strong research traditions and close links to different parts of the legal community in Sweden and beyond. Our graduates find career opportunities in an increasing variety of legal professions worldwide, including national and international legal institutions, NGOs, and the private sector.
Our research is carried out in all central legal fields and it is distinguished by its breadth and diversity. Many research projects carried out at the Faculty are characterised by the impact of globalisation and the challenges that law at a crossroads between different cultures faces.
Lund University’s Faculty of Law is particularly strong in public international law, international human rights law, EU law, elder law, labour law, environmental law and legal philosophy. Also, the number of interdisciplinary projects is increasing, involving researchers from different legal fields, as well as from other academic disciplines.
Our Master’s students have consistently excelled over the years and this has paved their way to attractive career options. Student teams from Lund University’s Master’s programmes at the Faculty of Law have competed successfully at International Moot Court competitions and won prestigious prizes on several occasions.
