Welcome to the Faculty of Law!

Established in 1666, the Faculty of Law is one of the four original faculties of Lund University. The Faculty has established student exchange programmes with a large number of universities worldwide. All the courses offered to international students are taught in English. Some 200 of the 2,000 students at the Faculty are international students from all over the world. This provides a genuine international atmosphere.


For exchange students the Faculty of Law offers a wide range of courses dealing with international aspects of law at Master’s level and master’s programmes: Master in International Human Rights Law, in cooperation with the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law and European Business Law. Please visit www.jur.lu.se/english for further information.


At the Faculty of Law, research is performed in all the central areas of law. It has over 60 teachers, including 20 full professors. The main objective of the Faculty of Law is to run the Swedish professional degree programme for the legal professions, leading to the degree of Master of Laws (LL.M.) after 4.5 years of study. The education consists of both theoretical and practical elements and is based on the Faculty’s research traditions combined with close links to the legal community in Sweden.


The premises of the Faculty, with modern lecture halls and group rooms, are placed in the middle of the historic centre of Lund, just a few steps from the Cathedral. Obvious meeting points are the café and the library, the largest in Scandinavia for legal literature, with a number of study places for individual studies. Both the library and the café are open every day of the week.


The centrally situated Faculty gives the law students easy access to the intensive student life which circles around Lund’s medieval city core, with its cosy cafés and shops, as well as the central station, from where the local trains take you to Copenhagen – the capital of Denmark – in less than an hour.
