Chair for Economic Law

About us

Economic processes are increasingly influenced by the requirements of international, European and national law. These interdependencies result in a necessary, constant dialogue between economists and lawyers and the need for interdisciplinary solutions to problems: The courses are designed to promote legal understanding by reconciling the complex interrelationships in the area of tension between economics and law, including current political -economic issues. Both public law and civil law topics are addressed.

The students should be able to differentiate energy-related problems regarding their economic and legal relevance and to assign these to relevant legal regulations. Therefore, they shall be taught the interpretation and application of the relevant legal norms and how to apply these norms on concrete legal cases. In this respect, relevant case law must always be consulted and, if necessary, critically evaluated. Therefore, the focus shall be to apply abstract legal rules to concrete issues to develop legal solutions. On the other hand, especially having in mind the highly dynamic "energy system transformation" (“Energiewende”), individual legal regulations must be critically scrutinized in terms of accuracy and coherence. Recommendations for legal policy action or improvement shall be discussed as well. The students will be given an impression of which aspects of the energy industry are currently problematic or relevant to practice. Overall, they will receive a solid overview and in-depth knowledge of the general structure of the energy industry as well as the systematics and the different regulatory levels (international, European, and national) of energy law for particularly sensitive aspects.

The aim of the module is to familiarize students with a basic understanding of the nature, systematic and central contents of private and public law of economics. Students shall develop a differentiated view of the issues of economic life and to assign them to the legal rules. They shall be taught the legal principles and norms as well as the subsummation to concrete cases (legal methods). The handling of relevant jurisprudence and case law and its critical evaluation is also to be practiced. Therefore, the focus shall be to apply abstract legal rules to concrete issues to develop legal solutions.

The students shall develop knowledge and understanding of the historical, institutional and substantive contexts of the European integration and in particular of the regulatory levels of EU law. They shall be able to differentiate between European law problems regarding their economic and legal relevance and to assign relevant legal rules. Therefore, they shall be taught the interpretation and application of relevant legal norms and how to apply these norms on concrete legal cases. In this respect, relevant case law must always be consulted and, if necessary, critically evaluated. On the other hand, especially having in mind dynamic changes in the area of European integration (e.g. as a result of the financial crises and the refugee crisis, "Brexit", criticism of the "democratic deficit" of the EU), it is important to critically examine individual regulatory complexes in terms of accuracy and coherence and to discuss recommendations for legal policy action or improvement. Overall, students will gain a solid overview of EU law and in-depth knowledge of particularly sensitive aspects of EU law and its position between international law and the national law of the member states, especially Germany.

The participants should be able to differentiate between different life situations and assign relevant legal regulations. In addition, the participants should name and define the legal facts in order to examine in more detail whether the respective life circumstance can be subsumed under a specific regulation. In this respect, the outlining of relevant case law and a critical appraisal of the same are to be practiced. The focus is thus on applying abstract regulations to a variety of problem situations in business life by working out legal, sometimes contentious matters in order to be able to develop possible solutions.

Participants should be able to differentiate between typical and current problems from the economic life and to be able to assign them to the relevant legal regulations. For this purpose, they will be instructed in the interpretation and application of relevant labor and tradeband in the subsumption of concrete case constellations in the same way. In this respect, relevant case law must always be consulted and, if necessary, critically evaluated. The main focus is thus on applying abstract legal regulations to concrete life situations. On the other hand, especially in the course of dynamic changes in human resources management and in the commercial economy, legal regulations must be critically scrutinized with regard to their accuracy and coherence, and legal policy recommendations for action and improvement must also be considered. Also, recommendations for action and improvements with regard to legal policy are to be made. Overall, the students will gain an overview and in-depth knowledge of particularly neuralgic aspects of the law of human resources management and trade law.
