Collaborations & Networks

Collaborations & Networks

One of the fundamental tasks of the faculty is to contribute to the development and use of legal knowledge, regionally, nationally and internationally. Collaboration with the surrounding society is therefore a priority task for both research and education and is conducted through several different channels.

EXCHANGE OF KNOWLEDGE THROUGH COLLABORATION

The Faculty of Law collaborates and interacts with a large amount of individuals and organisations in our society. This manifests in different ways and through various channels, for instance by official opinions, alumni activities and contract education. We also have a mutual knowledge exchange between our students and practitioners of law, as the students continuously do internships at law firms, authorities and various organizations. In return, law practitioners from, amongst others, these bodys come and teach at our courses.

Our Centres, Forums and Networks

There are several centres, forums and networks connected to the Faculty of Law, working to strengthen research and education within their respective fields. Some have links to other operations inside and outside the university while others are independent units.

Below is a list of our cooperation forums in alphabetical order: 

CENTRE FOR MULTIDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH ON RELIGION AND SOCIETY (CRS)
