University of Groningen
Faculty of Law

 

The University of Groningen is the second oldest university in the Netherlands and has been educating people to serve society ever since its establishment in 1614. All this knowledge and experience has stimulated the University to become what it is now: a modern, international university where work is being carried out at the frontiers of knowledge. It is a university with its own unique character, partly due to its geographical situation in the north of the Netherlands. The University of Groningen not only admitted the first-ever female student in the country but also produced the first Dutch astronaut: pioneering is a trait that is fundamental to this university.

The Faculty of Law at the University of Groningen is over 400 years old and has a long history of academic excellence and expertise within the Netherlands and internationally. Since it has the ambition to measure itself with the best law faculties in Europe, advanced systems of quality control have been implemented to continuously improve the Faculty's research and education. And although the Faculty has grown to become one of the largest law faculties in the country, it has kept its friendly and informal atmosphere which creates good relations amongst staff, students and alumni.

About Groningen
Groningen is the capital of the most northern province in The Netherlands (called Groningen as well), and both the University and the city of Groningen enjoy a unique character largely due this northern location. Unlike the western part of the country with its densely populated urban areas, the province of Groningen is predominantly rural and quite unspoiled. In terms of industry, the province has the largest natural gas fields in the EU. It is also an international centre for the biomedical and pharmaceutical industry. That will probably strike you most when entering the city of Groningen is its youthful population. Roughly a quarter of the city’s 200,000 inhabitants consists of students. The city itself is over 900 years old and the canals, ports and warehouses bring you back to Hanseatic times, when Groningen was a member of the alliance of trading guilds that established and maintained a trade monopoly over the Baltic Sea and most of Northern Europe.
