The authors felt it necessary to update the discussion, which is
associated with higher education, as one of the forms, which operates under
free market conditions, and the relationship that is established between the
higher education institutions and the students. Higher Education Institutions
is a “service provider”, but the student recipient of the service – “consumer”.
Both the Latvian and international higher education area is very different and
there are conflicting views on the issue. Consequently, the authors wanted to
analyze the current situation in Latvia, look at the legal framework relating
to the above problem and to provide their views.
