Constitutional Law

Constitutional Law can be studied as a minor subject at the UEF Law School. It concentrates on topics such as human rights, democracy and separation of powers.

In addition to providing a deep insight to the Finnish constitutional system, constitutional law at UEF Law School focuses on the universal questions of constitutional law through a comparative approach. Within constitutional law there is also strong emphasis on general comparative law and comparative legal studies concerning both teaching and research. Separation of powers, human and constitutional rights, constitutional review and the connection between law, politics and general doctrines of constitutional law are examples of the questions that have relevance when studying constitutional law at the University of Eastern Finland. The goal of the studies in constitutional law is that students learn to analyse different constitutional systems independently.
