Faculty of Law Faculty of Law
As a part of its commitment to academic excellence – in research as well as teaching – in an increasingly global environment, the Faculty hosts every year a number of visiting professors from other countries. These are leading researchers and teachers, who enrich the intellectual life in the Faculty, and their visits in the faculty encourage collaboration in research between Faculty members and leading international scholars.

Visiting professors typically teach condensed one-credit courses over a two to three-week long period and participate in relevant faculty meetings. The Faculty actively encourages its students to participate in at least one such course during their studies here. In addition, the Faculty hosts every year a number of visiting scholars who participate in Faculty seminars, conferences, colloquia etc.
Guests are invited by the Dean, following the recommendation of the visiting professors committee.
