The Legal Affairs department gives advice and monitors compliance with laws and regulations relating to contracts (including their drafting and reviewing), for example, and the overall administration of the university administration. In addition, the Legal Affairs department supports the Board of Appeal for Examinations (CBE), identifies relevant legal developments and assists in legal procedures.
