Faculty of Law

Organization profile

Layman's description

The Faculty of Law formulates their research goals with the Research Program Law in an individualized network society (LNS) and the Research Program Transformative effects of Globalisation and Law (TGL), which focuses on a number of important social developments in the technological and interpersonal field.

Relationships in society are becoming increasingly intensive, but also of shorter duration, more dependent and more complicated. Knowledge and risks are bound in multi‐cross-connections and there is a continuous trend towards globalization and Europeanization on a large scale. On the one hand there is a growing individualization; individuals often emphasize their own interests and freedom of choice. While we also see intertwined relationships, or networking, which is characterized by strong mutual dependencies. These developments do not only affect citizens and companies, role and responsibility of the government is also subject to change.

The academic staff of the Faculty of Law conducts research within two departments: The Department of Private Law and The Department of Public Law.
