Faculty of Law



About the faculty

The Faculty of Law is located in the centre of Bergen, overlooking the Bergen fjord.

At the Faculty of Law we focus on high quality research and teaching within a variety of legal areas. Our international profile is reflected both in research activities and in the substantial number of students which we have the pleasure of welcoming every semester. It is also seen in the number of students from our Faculty travelling abroad.
