An integral part to the Department of Law activities, the scientific and research activities of its members are. The results of the department's science and research consist mainly of high-quality publication outputs in important legal and economic periodicals or comprehensive monographs. Furthermore, the results of scientific research activities are presented at professional international scientific conferences, either organized directly by the department or through active participation. An important part of the scientific research, a participation in various projects and grants is being carried out especially by the department partners.
