The word of the dean

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Faculty of Law at the second oldest university in the Czech Republic – Palacký University in Olomouc. Since its re-establishment in 1991, the Faculty of Law espouses and imparts to its students the core values of integrity, humanity, democracy and civic duty. Our dedication to these values, and the extraordinary credentials of our faculty and the excellence in teaching and research have been recognised in a variety of fields of law on several occasions, such as with the award of the prestigious Hannah Arendt prize, the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence or the Fulbright Scholarships.

Our commitment is to provide excellent legal education and to prepare our students for lives of service and leadership in a world that is demanding and changing. We live out this commitment not only by placing a high priority upon student-faculty interaction, but also by offering to students an extensive real-world experience through a system of an experiential and clinical program, the excellency of which is internationally recognized. This website will provide you with information about programs taught in English (Master and Ph.D. programmes, both focusing on International and European Law), our vision of legal education at this distinguished faculty. I invite you to learn more about what makes studying in Olomouc so special!

Czech Erasmus student

Being a Czech student interested in international aspects of law I could not possibly make any better choice. Whether there were various moot courts, summer law school, Erasmus programme or any other activity abroad, all the faculty members and staff were always very nice to me and appeared to be supportive and helpful with my ideas and aims. Take a chance on Olomouc and experience the warm atmosphere of Palacký University.

Olomouc is an amazing city! This YOLOmouc, as usually is named by all the foreign students, is not just a student city (and you will see it is), but it is also a city where you will find everything you need. If someone asked me to describe Olomouc in a word, I would say: comfortable! Comfortable because of the nice accommodation, comfortable because if you are looking for sport, you have it, if you are looking forward to study, you have an amazing library (with night room!), if you look for fun, you will find it anyway. And don´t forget Olomouc is situated in the middle of Europe, so before you come here, save some money and you can easily travel all around Europe from Olomouc for the cheapest price ever. And the most important point for me and my experience (I first came to Olomouc to study and then to work), it is the university. Professors and all the responsible university staff were always willing to help and give advice, whatever I needed!

Ph.D. student from Finland

I first experienced Olomouc as an Erasmus student, but I decided to return for my Ph.D. in International and European Law. I happily recommend the Palacký University Faculty of Law to all international students, especially because of the individual approach and pleasant, almost „family“ atmosphere.

When I started thinking about studying abroad, I looked at a variety of European schools’ rankings and their ratings. Finally, I chose Olomouc as a beautiful students’ town with a rich history. At Palacký University, there’s plenty of study options and the faculty is excellent. Also general conditions, from the Law Faculty’s facilities through to students’ accommodation and other services, are ideal. All this allowed me to fully concentrate on my studies.
