Welcome to the Faculty of Law
at the Sigmund Freud University Vienna

A course of studies in law at the Sigmund Freud University Vienna offers a profound legal training with a high practical orientation.

It is designed according to the Bologna model as a six-semester Bachelor’s course and a four-semester Master’s course.

Graduates gain access to all professions requiring an Austrian law degree such as lawyers, judges, notaries and prosecutors.

Student-centered teaching in small groups is provided by our excellent academic staff which is highly experienced in practice and research. A special focus is put on international dimensions of law as well as promoting communicative and mediating skills. This is done under the umbrella of a university dedicated to research and improve social, medical, and psychological aspects of human life.  The SFU is the only Austrian private university offering regular legal studies.
