Faculty of Law

 

The law serves as the legal parameters which define not only the life of an individual, but within a society as well. The country and the community of states, as well as public and intergovernmental laws focus towards one goal: our common welfare – safety, freedom and social services for all. The complexity of our world is comparable to a complex microstructure of institutions in which the republic of Austria is a part of larger organizational structures, such as the universal UNO and the regional European Union as well as being a federal entity that is simultaneously structured within the local authorities – provinces and municipals – spanning corporate entities all the way to the professionally focused chambers of Commerce and Labor.

 

The complexities of these institutions are equivalent to the complexities of law. Should the law provide individuals with a fitting instrument in order to solve one’s problems – which in turn, introduces an additional scope of applications ranging from the family, to (autonomous and dependent) occupations, to leisure time, from culture to politics – which is why the law must be clearly defined and competently applied. Those familiar with only the wording of the law, but possessing little or no comprehension of how courts and administrative agencies apply and interpret the law, do not truly comprehend the law in all of its functional reality.

 

A Career in Research

 

The Faculty of Law is deeply committed to the systematic and methodical drafting and defining of the law, as well as fostering procedures to make these laws accessible. The study of law was an original part of the academic curriculum at the College of Social and Economic Sciences. When the school transitioned to a university in 1974/75, the Faculty of Law was created. The law school in Linz has always contributed significantly to all areas of the legal sciences, be it in the form of expert commentary accompanying all important laws, by contributions to international law lexicons and encyclopedias, by producing legal textbooks and textbook series, as well as with the publications of important professional journals and groundbreaking monographs.

 

Research at the Faculty of Law in Linz can be characterized by:

  • Fundamental Awareness – because sustainable basic principles can only be built upon stable, legal and legitimate foundations.
  • Practical Application – because the study of legal sciences is not an end in itself, but contributes to the responsibility of solving the concrete problems of individuals and society.
  • Multidisciplinarity – because the law portrays only one side of societal reality and can therefore not allow itself to be considered isolated.
  • International Relations – because European and world-wide mutual dependence cannot be achieved by confining ourselves to the Austrian system. We must look beyond our borders to learn about and compare foreign legal systems in order to benefit and learn from public international law and European law.
  • Commitment to an Exchange of Knowledge – the Faculty of Law places great importance on providing its researchers and teaching staff access to a national and regional network of legal expertise made available to the public, businesses, community organizations as well as legal consultants.

 

Research results at the Linz Faculty of Law exercise considerable influence. Research results surface in verdicts delivered at the highest courts nationally and internationally and are an influential and integral part in the drafting and composing the latest bodies of laws. These accomplishments have made the faculty a much sought-after partner for academic collaboration at institutions within Austria and abroad.

 

Education as Responsibility

 

By focusing on this research, courses at the Faculty of Law aim to educate by:

  • providing a well-rounded education stemming from the knowledge of legal context to teach students how to quickly solve new problems and familiarize themselves with new legal issues; in this way, they can best prepare themselves for
  • specializing in a particular area of the law.
  • Internationalization is supported by not only offering degree-seeking students opportunities to participate in European mobility programs and in post-graduate education abroad but also by special exchanges with American partner universities.

 

The education law graduates acquire at JKU is highly recognized and valued in Austria. This includes branches of:

  • the Judiciary
  • Administration and
  • legal consulting jobs; but also for
  • the business community

 

Socio-Political Commitment as an Obligation

 

The Linz Faculty of Law is committed to the understanding that simply depicting something is not enough; being pro-active is the key. This commitment is especially important in today’s world of advancing developments and in a society subject to constant change. With this in mind, education and research at the Linz Faculty of Law strongly reflects the sense of responsibility the school has to educate students on how to cultivate awareness to address legal political questions within society as well as provide politically responsible persons with alternatives to their responses.

 

Furthermore, many Faculty of Law professors and assistant professors are actively involved off-campus and in the community as:

  • members of the Constitutional Court as well as
  • the administrative tribunal or in
  • federal,
  • state, or
  • community level politics and activities

 

Studies With A Future

 

Future plans for the Linz Faculty of Law include not only an on-campus program, but creating a distance learning program such as Multimedia studies. The curriculum and study materials developed especially for this program enable students from all over Austria, and even worldwide, to study law in accordance with the curriculum in Linz, complete examinations and earn an academic degree. Measured by the numbers of enrolled first year students, the popular demand for this form of study has made the Linz Faculty of Law the second largest in Austria.

Faculty of Medicine

 

 In Fall 2014, the Johannes Kepler University (JKU) Linz added its fourth faculty, the Faculty of Medicine, which has been under the management of Dean Prof. Ferdinand Hofstädter as of October 1, 2014. Dean Hofstädter is also serving as the Vice-Rector of Medicine. The Faculty of Medicine has always been an important future campus development project for both the JKU and Upper Austria and it has now become a reality. The new Faculty of Medicine is a milestone in the JKU’s development and the university’s largest undertaking since the JKU was founded almost 50 years ago. In collaboration with the existing three faculties, Upper Austria will boast a modern hospital landscape that will have tremendous synergy potential with medically-related industries and local businesses. The Faculty of Medicine at the JKU will be a starting point to create a Medical Valley that will not only serve as a sustainable, driving force for the university, but also within Upper Austria and beyond its borders. Sixty-six institutes and departments at the JKU are already conducting medical and medically-related research.

 

Standing Shoulder-to-Shoulder to Assure Medical Standards

 

The realization of this project is a result of excellent cooperation between the Austrian federal government, Upper Austrian state government, the city of Linz, the Medical University of Graz, the Medical Society of Upper Austria, and the JKU. The unity demonstrated by everyone involved not only ensures the future education of medical doctors in Upper Austria, but will also offer research expertise in support of addressing social issues and problems that extend beyond Austria’s borders. The Faculty of Medicine‘s two specialized research areas, Clinical Research on Ageing and Health Services Research, will also be an integral part of the Bachelor’s degree program. These fields of research are unique in Austria and they are quickly becoming increasingly important areas of social research. These fields of research are not only conducive in support of conducting research with other medical universities, they also bring medical research results directly to the patients. In lieu of demographic developments, specific cancer research, dementia research, and medical technology are becoming increasingly important topics.

 

Unique University Cooperation

 

The Bachelor’s degree in Human Medicine is carried out jointly with the Medical University of Graz. The program is six semesters whereby subjects and modules taught during the first four semesters will be taught at the Medical University of Graz. During the fifth semester, students will return to the JKU to complete the program. The JKU accepted 60 students to the Bachelor’s degree program in Human Medicine for the 2014/2015 academic year. Over the next eight years, the program’s capacity will gradually expand to accepting 300 new medical students a year. In the context of the cooperation agreement between the universities, 120 students will be permanently posted in the pre-clinical program at the Medical University of Graz (300 when the program is in its full phase). The teaching and research cooperation agreement between Linz and Graz is unique in Austria and has enabled the program’s rapid launch as well as permanent cooperation in the field of pre-clinical teaching. Cooperation efforts will go beyond teaching to support fruitful collaboration in medically-oriented life science research, creating a strong “Pyhrn” axis.

 

32 Departments in the Planning Stages

 

The Faculty of Medicine will gradually add 24 clinical departments and 8 non-clinical departments. At the moment, the Faculty has no university clinics or institutes. The university is currently involved in organizing appointment procedures.

 

The Kepler University Hospital

 

The future Kepler University Hospital will be a joint effort between three renowned hospitals in Linz: The Linz General Hospital, the Linz State Women’s and Children’s Hospital, and the Wagner-Jauregg Provincial Neuropsychiastric Clinic. In the future, the Kepler University Hospital will serve as a healthcare facility as well as a place of teaching and research for professors and students at the Linz Faculty of Medicine.
