The Faculty of Law carries out foreign activities in many forms. These consist of teacher and student mobilities, but also of active cooperation between individuals, disciplines and the whole institution.
At institutional level, this is the mobility within the Erasmus exchange program. It involves both students and academic and non-academic staff. The Faculty of Law has established cooperation and contracts with more than a hundred foreign universities from thirty European countries. A more intensive form of Erasmus cooperation is implemented through the Rotterdam Law Network (a network of 35 universities from 30 European countries), which the Faculty is a member of.
Further cooperation is realized on a bilateral contractual basis. Long-term relationships have been established with UIC John Marshall Law Schoool (Chicago, USA), University of Gdansk (Poland), or the University of Vienna (Austria) in the form of joint projects, publications and short-term programs.
