Information concerning the routines for addressing harassment and discrimination in the classroom and in learning environments


The Faculty of Law and the Department of Law whole-heartedly support the #medvilkenrätt (Eng. #withwhatright) movement and will briefly inform students as to the internal responsibility and routines in place concerning harassment and discrimination


The Faculty of Law and the Department of Law are responsible for ensuring that harassment and discrimination do not occur in classrooms and other learning environments. Neither is the manifestation of attitudes based on sexism, racism or homophobia, or that are negatively age or disability related to be tolerated. The Faculty of Law and the Department of Law actively work to prevent the occurrence of such behaviour and manifestations of such attitudes among their teachers and students in working and learning environments.  


In those cases in which harassment or discrimination have occurred, it is the objective of the Faculty of Law and the Department of Law that students can report such behaviour in a secure setting and that students understand that such reports are taken very seriously.  Students can report such occurrences to the Head of Department and Deputy Head of Department, the Dean and Vice Deans of the Faculty of Law, or the Equality Coordinator, whose names are found at both websites, ie and Such incidences can also be reported to the course director, course administrator or student course administrators.


Reports can be made anonymously and students can request that their identity not be disclosed. Normally, the involved teacher or student who is believed to have harassed or discriminated would be contacted for a discussion as to the events. Reported incidents are not pursued further as against teachers or students without the consent of the reporting student. A report can be submitted in writing, however, students are always free to contact the management of the Faculty or Department in order discuss the events. To emphasise again, any reports made are treated very seriously.


The Faculty of Law’s support for the #medvilkenrätt movement and brief information (in Swedish) on what is being done to prevent harassment and discriminatory actions at the Faculty can be found at:
