The Department of Law provides the framework for legal research at Aalborg University’s Faculty of Social Studies. In addition to our permanent staff of researchers and administrative personnel, we maintain a large group of competent external lecturers, and the business law and law study programmes partner with economists at the Department of Business Studies.
