The University of Latvia Faculty of Law is closely involved in the international exchange programme Erasmus+ and Erasmus Mundus and this has meant partnerships with similar institutions all around Europe and also Russia.
The Erasmus+ programme also ensures a very successful mobility among faculty members, allowing instructors from our faculty to go on exchange trips and teach classes at universities in other countries. It also allows to attract guest professors from other countries for various courses at our university.
The Faculty of Law has worked for years with guest lecturers from Germany under the auspices of DAAD programme, as well. Due to a successful cooperation within this programme the Faculty of Law now employs a German proffessor full time.
The Faculty of Law has also developed partnerships with foreign universities and guest lectors under the auspices of other programmes. For example, professors from the United States of America teach classes due to the cooperation with the Center for International Legal Studies and the Fulbright programme.
The Faculty of Law is regularly visited by foreign students, instructors and professionals who are interested in legal studies, laws and legal training in Latvia.
The Faculty of Law has worked successfully with many state and private institutions, allowing students to strengthen their theoretical knowledge in practice. The Faculty of Law ensures internships at all levels of Latvia's courts, as well as the Constitutional Court, the Prosecutor-General's Office, the National Police, Parliament, national governance institutions, and local governments. Students can also have internships in the offices of sworn attorneys, sworn notaries and court bailiffs, as well as at relevant public organisations.
