About ...

The University of Vienna was founded in 1365 and is one of the oldest universities in the German-speaking world. Currently it is the largest and most diverse educational institution in Austria. Its Faculty of Law is also one of the first law schools established in Europe.

Many members of this faculty have developed teaching and research relationships with scientific institutions all over Asia during the last decades.

We appreciate teacher´s and student´s exchange, organize conferences and have many contacts both on personal and institutional level.

In order to improve and deepen cooperation within the faculty and with our partners in Asian Countries we established as "Forschungsstelle für Asienrecht" an Asian Law platform. This is to coordinate and integrate these initiatives, to facilitate cooperation within the University of Vienna and our partners and to increase the visibility of Asia-related activities of our Faculty.
