Welcome to the Faculty of Law!

Legal norms and parameters govern our co-existence, competition in business, and provide safety and security. Communities of people need rules and laws, and we need legal experts to define the laws that apply to all areas of life.

Legal education at the JKU does not mean primarily learning the law by heart. Communicating legal methods is in the foreground. It's a modern approach that allows students to master the challenges of the rapidly changing legal system and situation - whether in private law, public law, criminal law, corporate law, European law or in one of the other areas of specializations we offer in law studies.

The JKU is the first university in Europe to offer the Multimedia Diploma Degree Program in Law.  First introduced at the JKU in 2004, the program boasts over 850 online students a year.

In addition to pursuing well-known legal professions such as becoming an attorney or judge, JKU graduates can also pursue a career in business or public administration.
