“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: the  Utrecht University School of Law, the Utrecht University School of Economics and the Utrecht University School of 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.
