Faculty profile

The oldest, largest and most modern law faculty in Slovakia.

The Faculty of Law of Comenius University Bratislava combines over one hundred years of tradition of legal science and legal education with innovative, creative approaches, whose clear goal is to prepare graduates for the requirements of practice and to create such high quality scientific works that develop the application practice.

The Faculty of Law of Comenius University in Bratislava provides higher education at all three levels of study, in both full-time and part-time forms. Simulated case solving is becoming a basic standard and teaching of over forty English language and clinical courses, mainly focused on international legal competitions and on students' practice in practice, is also taking place.

The significant use of the concept of clinical legal education (in particular, simulated judicial and extrajudicial disputes, internships, courses focused on the resolution of ongoing legal cases, courses focused on the complex resolution of simulated legal cases) reflects the long-standing requirements of practice to develop in law students analytical and synthetic thinking, coupled with the ability of graduates to produce high-quality legal outputs immediately after their studies (details on clinical forms of education can be found here).

The Faculty has long-standing relationships with many institutions and individuals in legal practice, be they professional chambers, central government bodies or reputable law firms. The majority of the Slovak legal public, including opinion leaders, are graduates of the Faculty of Law of Comenius University in Bratislava.

In addition to a quality theoretical foundation, it is mainly knowledge from practice that enables us to constantly adapt our studies to the requirements of the labour market.

At the Faculty of Law of Comenius University Bratislava there are authors of fundamental scientific commentaries on legal regulations bringing original scientific knowledge and shaping legal practice.

The Faculty is involved in a number of high-quality international cooperation programmes, including the Erasmus programme for student mobility at over 50 partner universities in the European Union and Turkey. We send dozens of students every year.

Faculty Accessibility - Faculty of Law of Charles University in Bratislava


The Faculty of Law is located on Šafárik Square in a historic building . Some departments of the Faculty of Law are in the new building (extension) - entrance from Múzejna Street.


The faculty is located at the Šafárikovo námestie public transport stop, which can be reached either from the Main Station, Bus Station or from the Ľ. Štúr and Družba University House ( When travelling by car, it is possible to park directly in front of the building of the Faculty of Arts on Gondova 2. There are also reserved parking spaces on Múzejna Street.


This is a historical building where graduations and matriculations of the entire Comenius University are held, as the Rector's Office of the Charles University is located here. The entrance is problematic for people with physical disabilities. First of all, there are 8 steps to climb, behind which there is a heavy door that opens towards you, with the handle high up. Most of the time these doors are open. This is followed by the door to the photobooth, after which we find ourselves in the lobby. From the entrance hall, one passes through the open door to the ground floor corridor. Immediately to the left is the porter's lodge.
Barrier-free access is possible from the new building - the entrance on Museum Street. Enter through the two doors to the photo
cell. There is a doorman on the left. On the right is the elevator, which is marked inside in Braille. The elevator takes you up to the third or fourth floor. On these floors, it is possible to use the ramp to get to the old building, which is always at the end of the corridor to the left of the elevator. After crossing the ramp, you will always find yourself one floor lower in the old building than in the new building (from the 3rd floor to the 2nd floor, from the 4th floor to the 3rd floor). There is always an elevator that takes you up and down the old building of the Faculty of Law.


Because the Faculty of Law building is a historic building, it is not adapted to the needs of people with physical disabilities. Throughout the building there are doors that are massive, opening them is more difficult, in most cases they open towards each other. There are two elevators, but there is barrier access to both. The first lift from the porter's lodge on the left. The second lift is at the end of the corridor on the left. There are 7 steps and a flyer leading to it. The individual floors are marked with Braille signs. The elevator is equipped with a loudspeaker.
There is a wheelchair accessible toilet on the ground floor on the right hand side, the key to which is in the porter's lodge. It is currently used more as a store room for the cleaners.
On the first floor there is an auditorium and a filing room. On the second floor is the study department to the left of the elevator. To the right of the elevator, one can walk through a ramp to the third floor addition. The dean's office is on the third floor. Also from this floor it is possible to go to the fourth floor of the annexe without a wheelchair. The library of the Faculty of Law is located on the fifth floor of the annex - entrance from Múzejná Street.
