The Faculty of Law has eighteen chairs and three professorships. The 'chairs and professorships' page lists additional information about our professors, visiting lecturers, honorary members and emeritus professors.
The faculty's five research institutes – the Centre for European Law (CEP), the Institute for International and Foreign Law, the Research Centre for Human Rights in Criminal Proceedings (HRCP), the Research Centre for IT Law and Internet Policy (For..Net) and the Institute for the Didactics of Law – produce excellent, wide-ranging research in the core subjects of civil, public and criminal law.
