The Law on the amended Statute will enable the University to form it's new governing bodies following the requirements of the Statute as well as the Law on Science and Studies of the Republic of Lithuania.


The separate Law approving the Statute of the Vilnius University indicates today the commitment of the Lithuanian Government and the Seimas to observe and enhance the autonomy of the higher education institutions, which is in fact a key performance guarantee.

Historically when the legal status of the Vilnius University has been questioned during the independent history of the Lithuanian state it has always been settled by an independent law, which demonstrated the recognition of the historical fact of the establishment of the Vilnius University and its continuity.
