Faculty of Law and Administration
The Faculty of Law and Administration offers education which is very attractive and sought after on the labour market. Our three study programmes: Law, Administration and Internal Security give our students profound theoretical knowledge, practical skills and social competence. Our graduates can work as lawyers, counsellors, negotiators and public administration employees.
At present over 2 thousand students of our Faculty receive specialist knowledge and experience from our academic staff which includes judges, lawyers, tax advisors and public administration officers. Academic community of the Faculty is open to the external world and participates in various actions helping the Opole inhabitants and business, for example, giving pre-litigation legal help for citizens or preparing expert opinions for business and public administration entities.

The research activity of our scholars can be very well documented by numerous monographies, source texts, commentaries published by renowned publishers, papers and reviews published in specialist journals in Poland and abroad. The Faculty organises and co-organises various conferences, like: National Tax Symposium in Opole, or Opole Legal and Historical Colloquium. It also publishes a quarterly journal Opole Journal for Law and Administration.
Thanks to the broad spectrum of research interests of its members, the Faculty can cooperate with various entities, e.g. NGOs, public administration institutions, courts and business organisations. The implementation of the research outcome is one of the results of that broad cooperation.
In 2013 the Faculty of Law and Administration received the right to confer the title of Doctor of Laws.
