Moreover, the Faculty of Law works together with other institutions at the larger University, particularly the School of lnternational Studies. The School of International Studies offers a masters and PhD program, with courses taught by lawyers, economists, political scientists, historians and philosophers. Due to the law school's collaboration with the School of International Studies, the selected scholar will have opportunities for cooperation in the broader context of social sciences.
