UNILU The University of Lucerne is young. Although its roots go back to 1600, it has been inaugurated as a modern university only in 2000. The convenient size of the university provides students with a great degree of freedom and the possibility to form innovative combinations. Study courses are offered in traditional as well as in interdisciplinary subjects. Moreover, it is possible to combine elements from different faculties. Excellent support of students is a special feature of the University of Lucerne. Law students are allocated a mentor for the period of their studies in order to ensure optimal support and to maintain a dialogue between the students and lecturers. The academic staff cultivates cooperation with numerous foreign scientific institutions. These include, among others, renowned institutions such as various Max-Planck-Institutes and Harvard University in Cambridge, MA.
