Exhibition: 100 years of the Faculty of Law

On 17 October 2023, Radboud University will be celebrating its 100th anniversary. When it was first founded in 1923, the University consisted of three faculties, including the Faculty of Law. In honour of this special anniversary, a temporary exhibition on 100 years of the Faculty of Law is open in the hall of the Grotius building.

The exhibition tells the story of the Faculty by means of a timeline. It begins with the foundation of the University and its Faculty in 1923, when the Faculty only had 66 students. The timeline highlights special anecdotes about the Faculty of Law, for example during the Second World War and the turbulent 1970s. Some notable professors and exceptional students are also featured.

Want to know more? The exhibition in the main hall of the Grotius building will be on display until the end of the year.
