Research at the Faculty of Law

The Faculty of Law of the University of Antwerp has a long and fruitful research tradition. Our researchers are renowned for their study of positive law, but also for gauging the fundamental meaning of law in society and in public administration.

The Antwerp legal research is carried out within five research groups. This home page gathers all information about their research and the research structure of the Faculty of Law.

The Faculty’s Research Office supports the research policy of the Faculty. Peter De Cauwer, staff member and Evelien Vandenhaute, staff member, support individual researchers by informing, encouraging and guiding them through every step of the research process.
