The Faculty of Law of Masaryk University boasts many different international activities. These include teachers’ and students’ mobility as well as active collaboration between individuals, departments and entire institutions.
At the level of the institution, the mobility is ensured with the Erasmus exchange programme. This programme involves both students and academic staff. Within this programme the Faculty has established cooperation and concluded contracts with more than forty foreign universities from twenty European countries. A more intensive form of cooperation within the Erasmus programme is carried out on the Rotterdam Law Network (a network of 31 universities from 25 European countries), of which the Faculty is a member.
Further cooperation takes place on the grounds of bilateral contracts. We have enjoyed long-standing cooperation with The John Marshall Law School (Chicago, USA), Wydział Prawa Uniwersytetu w Białymstoku (Poland), Fordham Center on European Union Law (Fordham Law School, New York, USA) or Mykolas Romeris University, Faculty of Law (Vilnius, Lithuania). The Faculty of Law also successfully collaborates with Trnava University, University of Lodz (Poland), University Constantin Brancusi, Faculty of Law (Targu-Jiu, Romania), University of Maribor, Faculty of Law (Slovenia), Deák Ferenc Faculty of Law and Political Science (Györ, Hungary) or Saint-Petersburg State University of Aerospace Instrumentation, Faculty of Law (St. Petersburg, Russia).
The Faculty of Law MU cooperates with Universität Wien – Juridicumm, Institut für Staats- und Verwaltungsrecht on the NICLAS (New International Constitutional Law Approach Summer School) project. This project involves the organisation of summer schools dealing with the topics of international, European and constitutional law. The lecturers recruit from academic staff of both participating institutions.
Foreign teachers participate in the teaching at the Faculty of Law owing to, inter alia, the cooperation with the CILS (Center for International legal Studies), Salzburg. Thanks to this cooperation the Faculty is happy to welcome visiting professors, mainly from the USA.
