Legal Affairs


The Legal Affairs office provides EPFL’s middle and upper management with expert legal support. We are involved in the School’s strategic projects, ensuring they comply with all applicable legal requirements. We also play a role in drafting agreements, anticipating changes to the law and raising awareness of legal issues, as well as in conflict and risk management.

Other services include publishing laws and directives that apply to EPFL, drawing up new directives, and overseeing the development of new applications (such as for electronic signatures and managing contracts).
