The Academic Arbitration Court examines the applications collectively in a group made up of three arbitrators. The submitter of the petition must indicate the parties involved in the dispute, the decision that is being contested or the factual statements of the case, the claim and the facts (documents, digital records, etc.) that substantiate the claim.

The Academic Arbitration Court’s decisions are binding for Rīga Stradiņš University, its staff and institutions.
