Gender Equality, Equal Opportunities and Diversity

The Faculty of Law promotes an innovative and creative environment with space for change and opportunity for development for all, employees as well as students. Different backgrounds, experiences, knowledge and personalities are important to foster a dynamic environment and stimulate innovative thinking.

Respect, tolerance and consideration are to be appled in all relations along with a shared assumption of responsibility and loyalty to the University's core values, tasks and goals. Together, we are responsible for guaranteeing zero-tolerance towards offensive discrimination.

The Faculty of Law conducts systematic and preventive work for gender equality, equal opportunities and diversity. The Faculty has its own Equal Opportunities Advisory Committee. You are welcome to contact the committee's chair or secretary if you notice problems or if you have ideas for improvement with regard to gender equality, equal opportunities or diversity.
