Leiden Law School
The faculty has around 450 employees, academic and administrative staff. More than 325 of these are involved in teaching. Together they make Leiden Law School what it is today: a faculty driven by its research and enriched by its teaching.
Faculty Management and Employee Representation
The Faculty is managed by the Faculty Board, which is supervised by the Dean. The members of the Faculty Board each have a separate responsibility for either education, research or operational management, and there is also a student member. Employee representation is in the first instance organised in the Faculty Council. The Programme Directors of the study programmes, the Education Board, the Teaching Committees and Examination Boards each have their own specific role and are together responsible for the quality of the various bachelor’s and master’s programmes that are taught at the Faculty. The Research Board is concerned with the research policy of the Faculty and monitors the quality of the research programmes. The Faculty has five institutes, each managed by an Academic Director. The Faculty Advisory Board, with members from the legal profession, the judiciary and the business sector, meet with the Faculty Board several times a year.
To coordinate the activities in the various fields of study and to support the cohesion between education and research in those academic areas, the faculty has five institutes.
- Private Law
- Public Law
- Criminal Law and Criminology
- The Interdisciplinary Study of the Law
- Tax Law and Economics
The institutes are split into departments; each institute is managed by the Academic Director.
