A number of sets of draft MAL Regulations were developed and submitted for discussion:

  • MAL Departmental Model Regulations,
  • Regulations on the Election of MAL Academic Staff and Departmental Heads,
  • Regulations on the MAL Teaching Council,
  • Regulations on MAL Faculties,
  • Regulations on the MAL Rector elections for the 1992/93 academic year.


On 8th January, MAL Rector, Professor V. Korzāns signed an agreement with three leading universities in the Baltic States about membership in the Baltic States University Association. The University of Latvia also represented Latvia in this Association. The main aims of the Association were:

  • coordination of the foundation principles of study programmes, which would ensure a seamless transfer between study placements between the universities mentioned,
  • mutual support in the accessing of high level lecturers, and their exchange between the Association’s universities,
  • mutual support in the use of libraries, clinics and other teaching resources,

coordination of the level of qualification requirements, which would ensure the recognition of  diplomas and degrees gained at the Association’s universities in all three Baltic States.
