Legal Advice

The Legal Office at LiU handles most legal issues of importance to the University, such as contract management, legal counsel and information to the management, teachers, researchers and other employees at LiU. This may include questions regarding the settlements of disputes or risks assesment of legal issues.

Contract management covers areas such as negotiations and advice in the drafting of agreements with companies, research institutes and other public bodies all over the world. For assistance with contracts we will be most accessible through avtalsgranskning@liu.se.
