The Faculty of Law, University of Maribor is an active participant in not only Slovenian higher education space but also European and International areas. It supports opening its study programmes to the global environment and makes such international connectivity its priority.
Bringing the faculty in the international environment even further is thus one of the priorities of the faculty. Making the study programmes and the research work, conducted by the faculty, available to international influence can be quite helpful for the faculty’s future. While it is impossible to predict the future of our faculty, it is safe to say that no one will be able to deny the international achievements, namely the international publications of high quality, successfully conducted international projects and cooperation with other established foreign institutions in the field of study and research. It is paramount for the reputation of the faculty, and it's educational and research activity that the faculty nurtures the ties of international cooperation.
The Maribor Faculty of Law cooperates with numerous domestic and foreign faculties or universities. Cooperation in the area of education is reflected in the exchange of teachers, participation in committees for evaluation and defense of doctoral dissertations and participation in the processes of preparation and accreditation of study programmes.
The Maribor Faculty of Law has established links with most European countries, the most notable of which are Austria, Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Poland, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Portugal, Spain, countries of the former Yugoslavia and Russia. New connections were established with faculties in the United States of America. It can, therefore, be said that the Maribor Faculty of Law has established a wide net of possible partners for international cooperation, which is to become even greater in the future.
The faculty encourages networking, international activities of individuals, teamwork in a different research project, inclusion in ERASMUS programmes, participating in international associations and overall any kind of international cooperation. To make the incorporation in the international environment smoother and more successful, the faculty supports and encourages different language courses for students and tries to spread the use of English literature to as many courses as possible.
