Research in Law

The Faculty of Law

Research at the Faculty of Law mirrors the social changes of the last decades where both European issues and the effects of globalisation are central. Activities at the faculty embrace a wide range of research areas and specialisations with an expanded and highly reputable undergraduate and doctoral education.

Not only does the faculty conduct research in the traditional legal topics, but also in a number of newer special fields. Much of the research is at the highest level both in and outside Sweden.

Read more about the research on the Faculty of Law's website.
