International legal research
The Nijmegen Faculty of Law cooperates closely with - and advises - external partners such as civil law notary offices and law firms, financial organisations, international businesses, courts, governmental bodies, ministries, NGOs and European organisations. Publications are written with a view to the legal practice. One element of the research centres' mission is to make academic research more practical, for example by preparing best practices, legislative proposals and EU directives.
Radboud Business Law Institute
Radboud Business Law Institute (Onderzoekcentrum Onderneming & Recht, OO&R) facilitates and conducts high-quality academic research in the field of business-oriented private law. The institute is a collaboration between the Radboud University Law Faculty and a number of partners, which are renowned national and international law firms, financial institutions and multinationals. The institute structurally cooperates with foreign research institutes, such as the Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law in Hamburg, the University of Oxford, and the KU Leuven.
Research Centre for State and Law
The Centre studies the central issues and basic principles in mainly public law as well as European and international law.
Fields of research that are of particular interest from the perspective of the EU Framework Programme Horizon 2020 are: the ways in which boundaries are changing, and the rapidity with which this occurs. The hidden rules which govern the changes and the consequences for people living in the EU or coming to it are fundamental to the future of Europe.
