Characteristics of assistance to differently abled personsSpecial exam arrangements/equalisation of disadvantages; Within the options available, structural improvements have been made in recent years (disabled toilet, ramp at the entrance, electric door opener being developed); “Active Involvement” (such as through appropriate workplace design) for gifted graduates with a view to subsequent recruitment. Last year, for example, a severely visually impaired former student and subsequent employee was awarded the most richly endowed Doctoral Prize at the FAU.
Characteristics of diversity advancementMany students with Turkish and Russian-speaking family backgrounds, in particular, with many of them being recruited as staff later on (currently, there are two non-native Germans among the four Habilitation candidates in criminal law). Special courses on specialist jargon and language, such as for Turkish students, so that they can also learn the legal language in their native language (and/or the native language of their parents).
