Ghent University Law School
Providing quality and excellent education since 1817
The Law School is located in the historic centre of the city of Ghent. While occupying a number of historic buildings from the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries, it has modern teaching facilities including excellent libraries and well-equipped computer facilities.

The Law School offers academic degrees in law, criminology and notary practice, as well as postgraduate programmes in International and European law, the economic analysis of law, environmental law, port and maritime sciences and criminology. The official teaching language is Dutch, except for specific English language postgraduate programmes such as the LLM programmes.

The faculty consists of more than 80 professors and about 90 assistants who, in addition to teaching, are extensively engaged in research, writing, lecturing and public service.
Many of its members have international reputation in their field of specialisation, participate in national and international projects and are called upon as experts in the preparation of the public policy. In the LLM programmes, several foreign professors with an international reputation reinforce the faculty for specific courses.

With a student population of around 4000 students, Ghent University Law School is presently the largest law school in both Flanders and Belgium. Many of its alumni play a prominent role within the legal system as government officials, judges, members of domestic and international law firms or as law professors at other Belgian and foreign universities.

Ghent University Law School counts amongst its alumni a former Belgian Prime Minister, Guy Verhofstadt, and other prominent ministers of the Belgian federal government and Flemish governments, members of the Court of Cassation, the Constitutional Court and the Council of State in Belgium.
