University law

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The university law is an area of law in the Special Administrative Law and includes the regulations in higher education.

The Higher Education Framework Act (HRG) is the framework law . The State University Act (LHG) , which must be completed, applies to universities in the federal states .

The content of university law within each institution includes internal regulations on the university constitution (e.g. resolution, composition of the university senate, the university council, the administrative board), the appointment procedure and the examination regulations .

In Germany, higher education law is traditionally geared towards the autonomy of the universities, which can regulate many matters themselves through statutes . The university laws are therefore limited to the regulation of basic framework conditions.
