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!
