“Research work at the European Law Faculty includes many dimensions of legal, social sciences and engineering issues. We encourage lecturers, researchers and students to integrate into basic and applicative research projects, to publish research findings in domestic and foreign scientific and professional publications and to participate in various competitions and conferences. In a short time, the European Law Faculty has made big steps in the field of research and has become one of the recognized research institutions within the national and international environment. “
