About us

The department of European, Public and International Law is part of the Faculty of Law and Criminology of Ghent University.

It consists of the former departments of European Law, Public Law and Public International Law, who were merged into one larger department of European, Public and International Law on October 1, 2014.

Our focus is the reinforcement of the collaboration between the different disciplines on the level of education, research and service.

We deal with the Bachelor and Master courses in Law, MSc in Maritime Science and provide guidance in the Bachelor Legal writing course and in the writing of the Master thesis.

The head of department is Prof. dr. Geert Van Hoorick.
