The Faculty of Law at ULap is responsible for the education of one fourth of the lawyers in Finland. Our new students follow the renewed degree structure, which combines multiform modes of study and independent study. Our teaching is now more practical than ever, without neglecting the theoretical foundations of the discipline. We study law and justice comprehensively, addressing a range of different sectors of society. Our research is carried out in collaboration with the local stakeholders and international partners.

The appointee’s duties will include conducting research in the field of Intellectual Property Rights, IP Management and Sustainability at the Faculty of Law, in the context of the Academy of Finland funded project “Shaping, fixing and making markets via IPR: regulating sustainable innovation ecosystems (SHARE)”.

At ULap, the appointee will work under the supervision of Associate Prof. Rosa Maria Ballardini. However, close collaboration with the team from the University of Helsinki will be pursued on a constant base. The main working language will be English.
