    Since its founding in 1963, Tilburg Law School has become one of the leading law schools in Europe. Through top-level research and the provision of high- quality university education, the School contributes to society. Tilburg Law School is organized into five Departments: Public Law and Governance (PLG); Law, Technology and Society (TILT); Private, Business and Labour Law (PBLL); the Fiscal Institute Tilburg (FIT) and Criminal Law. The mission of the School is to understand and improve the role of law and public administration in addressing the social problems of today and tomorrow.

A university education provides students with the latest substantive knowledge and trains them to be critical thinkers and resilient professionals.

The Department has four regular (part full-time, part part-time) chairs: in criminal (procedural) law, in criminology, in human trafficking and globalization, and in financial-economic criminal law. In addition, there is an endowed chair in forensic psychiatry. Currently, the Department has about 30 permanent staff members. Particular value is placed on collaboration, both within the Department and with colleagues within Tilburg Law School and other Schools. The Department has an informal culture, where equality and providing an inspiring and safe working environment are paramount. Providing excellent education and conducting challenging research are seen as two main tasks that can only be accomplished together.
