Lecturers’ Conference (KdL)
The Lecturers' Conference (KdL) is composed of six members of the General Conference of the Faculty Members, one representative from each department, and the Rector. It advises the Executive Board on all matters which concern the faculty as a whole and represents faculty interests, e.g. by issuing position statements on consultation issues.
