Welcome to the homepage of the Faculty of Law
Legal studies have always been an important component of the academic programs at the University of Pécs. In the period between 1950- 1971 it was the only faculty that secured the continuity of the University after WW II. In 2003 the Faculty celebrated the 80th anniversary of the Modern Law School in Pécs. The academic eminence of the Faculty is well illustrated by the fact that the Constitutional Court of Hungary has two members from the University. The Faculty has long standing international relations, mainly with German speaking countries, e. g. with the universities of Marburg, Bayreuth, Vienna, and the law faculty at the University of Graz. A more dynamic development started in 1992, when the financial support granted by the World Bank enabled study tours abroad and also the invitation of visiting professors. At present the Erasmus partner institutions of the Faculty are: the Universities of Aalborg, Babes-Bólyai Cluj, Bayreuth, Berlin, Bordeaux, Extremadura, Graz, Groningen, Köln,Marburg, Regensburg, Rovaniemi, Tampere, Tilburg, Trier, Tours, Vilnius . In recent years we have started co-operations with law faculties in former socialist countries (e.g. Kolozsvár, Novi Sad, Rijeka, and Wroclaw) which involves teacher and student mobility and short visits. The first CEEPUS (Central European Exchange Programme for University Studies) network in the field of Law was created in 2005, coordinated by the Faculty of Law, University of Pécs, and with the participation of the following Universities: Karl Franzens University Graz, Babes-Bólyai University Cluj, University of Maribor, University of Novi Sad. Interest in learning English has increased and the number of courses offered in foreign languages is also growing.The post-graduate and PhD courses offered at the Faculty of Law enjoy increasing popularity.
