Governing Bodies

The Faculty Board

The Faculty Board is the Faculty of Law's highest decision-making body and is responsible for core activities such as undergraduate studies, postgraduate studies and research. The Board acts as a management board for the Department of Law. The Dean is the chairman of the Faculty Board as well as several other bodies and is the primary representative of the Faculty. The Head of Department is responsible for the Department's administration and makes sure that the organisation complies with current regulations.

The Disciplinary Domain Board

One level above the Faculty there is the Disciplinary Domain Board which leads the work within the scientific field of the humanities and social sciences. Within this scientific field there are six faculties. The Dean is a member of the Disciplinary Domain Board and represents Juridicum's interests there. The Disciplinary Domain Board has the overall responsibility for the organisation and looks after:

  • Documentation for the University Board (the University Council) for decisions on resource allocation between the scientific fields
  • Long-term provision of premises
  • Resource and task allocation, including the district's strategic funding
  • Library services
  • Draw attention to the students' study conditions/study environment  

The Disciplinary Domain Office is the the processing and service body for the Faculty and the Faculty Board, and looks after the Faculty of Law's interests at the university's central administration.


The Research Committee and the Teaching Committeee prepare and decide on issues related to research and undergraduate studies and are organisationally subordinate to the Faculty Board. The Directors of Studies for research and undergraduate studies, respectively, are subordinate to the Head of Department.

At the Faculty there is also an equal opportunities group, a recruitment group, a doctoral student council, a nomination committee and a faculty assembly
