The Constitution, which contains the main statutes of Leibniz University Hannover, deals with essential matters laid down by the Lower Saxony Higher Education Act (NHG) or ones which are regarded by the Senate as requiring regulation. In this way Leibniz University Hannover makes use of the opportunity for extensive reforms and the improvement of its quality.
