Welcome to the Faculty of Law in Ljubljana

The Ljubljana Faculty of Law, established in 1919, is one of the founding faculties of the University of Ljubljana and the largest law faculty in Slovenia. On 15 April 1920, the first dean of the Faculty, Professor Leonid Pitamic, marked the beginning of the Faculty's teaching and research activities with an inaugural lecture entitled "Law and Revolution”. Ever since, the Faculty has offered its students an intellectually exciting learning environment with high academic standards at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, promoting both legal knowledge and critical thought.

Through the years, the Faculty of Law remained committed to its mission to provide its students with the best possible legal education so as to prepare them for all the traditional legal professions. Today, it is not only the oldest but also the largest and – by any measure – the best law faculty in Slovenia. Located in a renovated building complex at the very centre of the city of Ljubljana, the Faculty boasts a large teaching staff working in nine departments, six further associated research institutes and the most extensive law library in the region.

We are proud of the fact that our graduates go on to assume important positions in our society and shape the Slovenian legal system and practice, but we also nurture our international outlook and reputation. This is shown not only in the European, comparative and international focus embodied in our study programmes, but also in the high mobility of our students and teaching staff, frequent visiting lecturers and other distinguished guests, successful participation in international student competitions and a growing portfolio of international conferences and similar events taking place at the Faculty. 

You are welcome to read the pdf version of our booklet which contains information on the history and current work of the Ljubljana Faculty of Law. We hope that it will satisfy your curiosity and encourage you to visit us.
