Professors at the Law School manage or are involved in six Institutes of the University of St.Gallen (HSG). The Institute concept makes a significant contribution to the quality of education, research and executive education.
The HSG culture is strongly characterized by its Institutes and Research Institutes. The Institute concept contributes significantly to the strong reputation of the University of St.Gallen in education, research and executive education.
Institutes and Research Institutes are integrally linked to the HSG for financial, conceptual and above all for staffing purposes, yet operate as largely autonomous units that are run as businesses. They are particularly active in the areas of research, executive education and services.
The Law School has six Institutes and a Competence Centre:
- Institute of European and International Business Law (EUR-HSG)
- Research Institute for Labour Economics and Labour Law (FAA-HSG)
- Research Institute for Information Law (FIR-HSG)
- Research Institute for Legal Sciences (FR-HSG)
- Institute of Public Finance and Fiscal Law (IFF-HSG)
- Institute for Legal Studies and Legal Practice (IRP-HSG)
- Competence Centre for Legal Psychology at IRP-HSG
