Summary:
[…] The European Faculty of Law and its management act in an enterprising manner. We consider this an advantage since they are rational and aware of limitations to resources (i.e. pondering the development and employment policy). By including student representatives in the management board and other bodies, it would be possible to avoid complaints against adopting possibly unilateral decisions and measures without the cooperation and adequate influence of students, as well as against rapid and sometimes informal implementation of changes – also when it comes to the accreditation of changes of study programmes. It would be beneficial if students were also included in all phases of the development of new study programmes.

The European Faculty of Law emphasizes professional and practical focus of its study programmes as well as the importance of acquiring knowledge and competences that the environment and thus the graduates require. The faculty is flexible and market orientated when forming its study programmes and establishing knowledge requirements. We should particularly compliment good communication between students and teachers.

We estimate that education at the faculty is well organized. However, faculty's activities should be more formalized and growth of human resources should be assured, including the employment of teachers and pedagogical assistants. The faculty should also intensify its other core activities (research as well as formalization and expansion of cooperation with the environment – also across the border). Student and teacher mobility should also be strengthened.

The group of experts finds that the European Faculty of Law meets all criteria, whereas the inconsistencies mentioned in the report can be remedied and the deficiencies can be improved based on our recommendations.
