Summer school and the University of Groningen

The Faculty of Law at the University of Groningen is a modern, internationally oriented institution that has existed for nearly four centuries. As it measures itself amongst the best law faculties in Europe, advanced systems of quality control have been implemented to continuously improve the Faculty’s research and education. Although the Faculty has grown to become one of the largest law faculties in the Netherlands, it has kept a friendly and informal atmosphere where good relations exist between staff and students.

The Faculty offers a wide range of law subjects and a large variety of specialized courses. Over 3,700 students study here under the supervision of 38 full time professors, 18 professors holding a special chair, 6 visiting professors and 220 full time staff members (152 academic teaching staff members and 70 administrative staff members). Each year approximately 450 foreign students stay for a term or a full year of study. Over 65 courses are taught and examined in English. All Bachelor and Master programmes in the Faculty have full accreditation, including the English-language programmes. This accreditation leads to a direct legalisation of the diplomas granted here in most countries throughout the world. Our graduates are highly sought after in the professional world, with many using their legal background in working with various local governments, ministries, political parties, multinational corporations, non-profit organizations, and even private practice.

A sustainable society requires that laws and the legal organization of a people meet good governance standards. Research has shown time and again that this is necessary for economic growth, democratic development, and the prevention of social conflict in general. The Faculty of Law at the University of Groningen wishes to contribute to sustainable societies – both in the Netherlands and abroad – by adopting a governance perspective within its research activities and outputs.

The Faculty offers international students from all over the world the opportunity to participate in its LLB programme in International & European Law , or one of its many internationally focused LLM programmes.
