With over 6.500 students and 650 members of staff, Leiden Law School
is one of the largest faculties in The Netherlands. Yet, in all its diversity, it is still known for its ability to provide education on a small scale. The Faculty focuses on multi-faceted and high-level teaching and research, both nationally and internationally. It does so by working with talented people, and stimulating and supporting them in their professional and personal ambitions. The Faculty is housed in the beautifully restored Kamerlingh Onnes Building on the Steenschuur in Leiden. Working for the Leiden Law School means working in an inspiring scientific environment.
Research at Leiden Law School means research at the highest level. Leiden Law School has eight broad research programmes
, in which researchers from different (legal) disciplines work together. This focus came about through the notion that important research questions are mostly found at the interaction between the various disciplines. Terms and conditions
