Faculty of Law, Economics and Governance

“We train people who want to take responsibility for shaping a dynamic, resilient and adaptable society.”

1 faculty, 3 specialisations, 3 departments

The Faculty of Law, Economics and Governance at Utrecht University is a unique combination of three departments: Law, Economy and Governance. These three specialisations offer education and conduct research independently as well as jointly. This multidisciplinary approach makes the faculty an outstanding partner for knowledge exchange at a high level.

Society and cooperation

Our focus is on people who want to take responsibility for shaping our society, both now and in the future. People who want to play a role in solving important social issues. This is why our faculty is fully integrated in society – for example, through national and international cooperation with government, the business sector, social organisations and academic institutes.
