Driven by intellectual creativity and critical thinking since 1479, researchers and students at the University of Copenhagen have expanded horizons and contributed to moving the world forward. With its 5,000 researchers and 39,000 students, the University boasts an international research and study environment and is highly ranked on the leading ranking lists of the world’s best universities.
The University offers researchers and students the opportunity to develop their talent and launches ambitious interdisciplinary initiatives to support its strong academic communities. Through research-based teaching – and by involving them in research – students are equipped to address society’s challenges and needs.
The faculty of Law (JURA) works towards creating greater knowledge of national and international law. Through a research-based education the Faculty ensures that its legal graduates have the skills needed to analyse and contribute to interdisciplinary and problem-oriented tasks in both the private and the public sectors in Denmark and abroad.
The Centre of Excellence for the study of International Courts (iCourts) is hosted at JURA. This Centre constitutes an essential point of reference for the interdisciplinary and empirical study of EU law. iCourts has been leading the development of the field of International Law & Courts, with EU law at its core. Innovative research developed by its members has been presented at international and national conferences and published in the most relevant journals of the disciplines of Law, Political Science, Sociology or History.
