Although the University of Applied Sciences Wiener Neustadt does not offer a law degree, we place great importance on offering a high-quality range of courses on basic legal subjects. The Institute of Law is responsible for teaching law at all faculties at the University of Applied Sciences Wiener Neustadt.
We employ both internal teaching and research staff and external practitioners (from law firms, state administration and the legal departments of private firms) for teaching. We offer legal subjects in each area of study, the knowledge of which is expected in the respective professional field. While learning the basics of a field of law, students will not only acquire theoretical knowledge but also the ability to apply abstract legal provisions to real life situations.
The institute's most important research topics currently include European competition law and forestry law.
