The Faculty of Law at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf stands for practice-oriented and internationally oriented research and teaching. The basis for this is close cooperation with local practice - over 70 judges, public prosecutors and lawyers support the education as lecturers and honorary professors.

In addition, there is a lively international exchange and cooperation with foreign universities, especially with the Radzyner School of Law in Herzliya (Israel), Suffolk University Law School (USA) and Cergy-Pontoise (France).
