The Nordplus Law Network, created more than a decade ago, today comprises 22 Nordic law schools specializing in the field of law from Denmark (Copenhagen University, Syddansk University, Aarhus University, Aalbor University), Estonia (University of Tartu), Finland (Helsinki University, University of Lapland, Turku University and University of Eastern Finland), Iceland (University of Iceland and Reykjavik University), Latvia (Riga Graduate School of Law), Lithuania (Mykolas Romeris University), Norway (University of Oslo, University of Bergen, the Arctic University of Norway), Sweden (Stockholm University, Orebro University, Lund University, Uppsala University, Umea University and University of Gothenburg).
The overall goal of the network is to reinforce the academic cooperation between the members of the network through systematic exchange of cultural and professional experience and best practices, thus ensuring and strengthening the Nordic solidarity and cultural understanding. The Nordplus Law Network members have become multi-lateral partners of Erasmus+ inter-institutional agreement framework. The cooperation within the network takes form of systematic, extensive and well-organized academic mobility of students and the exchange of teaching staff, which increases knowledge of different Nordic legal cultures and develops intercultural and professional know-how.
The network is open to new members training legal professionals and having developed a wide range of courses at advanced level offered for Nordic exchange students.
