International Cooperation is an integral part of School of Law’s teaching and research activities.
We have academic collaboration contacts with many research centres and law faculties in other countries and are involved in various research- and study-related networks and organizations, mobility agreements and international projects.
This makes study abroad possible for our students and creates international research and teaching opportunities for our academic staff. Members of our teaching staff regularly teach courses and hold lectures as well as conduct research at universities in other countries. In addition, School of Law is a partner in two joint degree programmes carried out in collaboration with partner universities across Europe.
In 2015, we launched our first international master’s programme in IT Law. One year later, another international master’s programme in International Law and Human Rights was opened in Tallinn. With the introduction of these two MA programmes, we have expanded our international scope in terms of international staff and students, new research projects, international conferences etc.
Since 1996, School of Law publishes an English language law journal Juridica International with coverage of legal topics of Estonian and international importance. This has become a highly valued channel for Estonian lawyers and legal scholars to take their research onto the international arena. Furthermore, our foreign colleagues are also increasingly using this opportunity to publish their articles in the journal.
