Description, aims and objectives

The Faculty is unique in Switzerland in combining such apparently varied fields of study and research as law, forensic science, criminology and public administration.

The Faculty thus offers a comprehensive university education in law, allowing students to acquire knowledge of positive law as well as the critical and analytical capabilities essential for the practice of any legal profession.

The School of Criminal Justice (SCJ) is an integral part of the Faculty and is the only institution in French-speaking Europe to offer a comprehensive education in forensic science (forensics and criminalistics) and the only University institution in Switzerland to offer Master’s and doctoral studies in criminology.

Lastly, the Faculty recently welcomed into its fold the Swiss Graduate School of Public Administration (IDHEAP) which offers a wide range of courses at Master and post-Master level allowing students to acquire and enhance the knowledge required by specialists in public affairs.
