Excellent relations are maintained between the students and staff, aided by the 8 members of the StuRa (elected students who offer help and advice on study, as well as other aspects of university life. The StuRa publishes its own newspaper, and plays an important role in the departmental decision making process. StuRa members also organise the annual Law Ball, as well as providing the all important sparkling wine following students’ completion of the first state examinations.
