What can be organized in a decentralized way is invested in the Education Organization. In the Education Board organization, there is a shared responsibility between the Law School Board (especially the Vice-Dean of Education) on the one hand and the academic directors on the other hand. 

Academic directors

Each program has an academic director. Under the leadership of the Vice Dean of Education, he or she is responsible for the design and quality assurance of the study program and, among other things, for the coherence of the program and the provision of information.

Program committees

In addition, there are the program  committees that advise the Law School Board. The Examination Board has its own responsibility with regard to examinations and all forms of testing known to the Law School.
