This changed, however, during the 19th century when the university became a world-class institution of higher education and research.
At the end of the 19th century important scholars such as Bernhard Windscheid (one of the fathers of the German Civil Code) and Wilhelm Ostwald (viewed as a founder of modern physical chemistry) taught at Leipzig.
This was the year that the first woman in Germany obtained her JD, Johanna von Evreinov.
Leipzig University was one of the first German universities to allow women to register as "guest students".
At its general assembly in 1873 the Allgemeiner Deutscher Frauenverein thanked the University of Leipzig and Prague for allowing women to attend as guest students.
