Faculty and Research at the Law School Our lecturers actively take care of the students in the Law School and their successful graduation. Our professors appreciate the manageable size of the university. The good coaching relationship offers opportunities for joint exchange in a way that is no longer possible in most large faculties of law. Frequent and varied contacts between students and professors contribute significantly to the attractiveness of the course syllabus and research at the Law School. Apart from their scientific qualification, the lecturers of the Law School also have a wealth of practical experience. Most professors of the Law School previously worked as lawyers, in a court or in public administration. In addition to their main occupation at the University of St.Gallen, some lecturers still practice law part-time. Thus, the lecturers do not only meet high scientific standards, but are also able to incorporate their diverse practical experience in their teaching. The Law School of the University of St.Gallen has a broad range of teaching staff whose members are active in various areas. In addition to the full professors, the teaching staff also comprises numerous associate professors and habilitated lecturers who work in various legal professions. Moreover, several assistant professors as well as more than 100 lecturers also convey legal knowledge in lectures, exercises, workshops and seminars.
