Faculty of Law, University of Osijek
|Established||10 September 1975|
The Faculty of Law (Croatian: Pravni fakultet) is a faculty of the University of Osijek.
The very inception of law studies in Osijek date back to 1961, when the University of Zagreb's Faculty of Law organised its short-lived study of law here. This was followed by the introduction of continuous education of lawyers as part of the Study of Law at the Faculty of Economics in Osijek in 1973. Two years later, lack of qualified lawyers in the regions of Slavonia and Baranja and efforts to raise and improve the educational profile of the local populace were the core reasons that the Study of Law was expanded into a fully-fledged Faculty of Law.
In its first years of activity, the teaching staff consisted mostly of teachers from the Faculty of Economics in Osijek and renowned visiting professors of the University of Zagreb's Faculty of Law. In the mid-1980s, thanks to selfless efforts of the staff and the first Dean, Professor Dragutin Rilke, the Faculty managed to appoint its own teachers for all courses. The Faculty of Law in Osijek is organised into 20 Chairs, each comprising mutually related subjects, with the other organisational units being the Library, Secretariat, Law and Economics Clinic and the Lifelong Learning and Foreign Languages Section.
