Mission of the Institute

The new Millennium has resulted in new challenges for the Hungarian higher education, including the legal education. The Faculty of Law and Political Sciences does everything to meet these challenges. Our ambition is to preserve our uniqueness and values and to engage into the European scientific and educational community that we became official members of in 2004.

The institute works in order to achieve this broader goal through the education of comparative law and related subjects, and through operating our foreign legal programmes.

Currently we have two of such programmes: the "American Legal Expert's Training" and the "German and European Econimic Law Programme" (Europäishces und Deutsches Wirtschaftsrecht). Besides these opportunities we offer courses about the basics of Hungarian, French, German, English and American legal systems and also the law of the European Union through the Comparative Law Programme. These courses are held in English, French and German, and are avaliable for both Hungarian and visiting Erasmus students.

Brief history of the Institute

THE FACULTY OF LAW AND POLITICAL SCIENCES CREATED A NEW RESEARCH UNIT IN 2003 WITH THE NAME OF "INSTITUTE OF COMPARATIVE LAW". THE AIM WAS TO CREATE A WIDER AREA OF COMPARTIVE LEGAL REASEARCH AND TO ESTABLISH A STRONG BASIS FOR THE FOREIGN LEGAL PROGRAMMES. BESIDES CREATING THE INSTITUTE THE FACULTY ALSO MADE COMPARATIVE LAW AN OBLIGATORY SUBJECT SO OUR GRADUATES WOULD HAVE SATISFACTORY KNOWLEDGE ABOUT EUROPEAN LEGAL SYSTEMS WHICH THEY WILL NECESSERALY ENCOUNTER WITH DURING PURSUING THEIR CARREER.

The Institute is led by Prof. Dr. Attila Badó since its foundation.
