In our globalising world, universities have to face growing, intense competition, both in research and teaching. To maintain and further strengthen our excellence in research, choices have to be made. For this reason, Leiden University has selected 11 research profile areas, most of them with a strong multidisciplinary focus.
The Leiden Law School proudly presents the new Leiden Law Blog. More than 50 researchers are poised to give their views on current events. The authors, all specialists in fields of law and criminology, are blogging in English. Their aim is to reach a worldwide audience.
Research in Leiden is concentrated in five Faculty research programmes, in which researchers from different (legal) disciplines work together. This focus was determined by the idea that it was particularly at the areas of intersection between the various disciplines that important research questions can be found.
The Leiden Law School has a number of partnerships for scientific research, both nationally and internationally.
Doing a PhD at Leiden Law School is an excellent way to increase your own expertise in a certain field, to advance a legal and/or academic career, and to increase the world’s body of knowledge.
The Meijers Research Institute and Graduate School is the research institute of Leiden Law School.
