Legal Department

The Legal Department supports and advises the institutions of the University of Stuttgart in various legal matters.

The Legal Department provides support and advice in questions relating to University Law, statutes and regulations, contractual matters, legal matters relating to property and buildings, settling claims, election issues, legal supervision of the student parliament and in dealing with scientific misconduct.

Furthermore, the Legal Department represents the University of Stuttgart during court proceedings in administrative and civil disputes. Also, we report offenses and file complaints in response to criminal acts which are to the detriment of the university.
