With a View to Europe

Law is becoming more and more wide- ranging. International interconnections in business and European integration are continually providing new challenges which are taken up by the Faculty of Law in its research and teaching. In addition to the traditional fields of German jurisprudence it is also intensifying comparative studies of European and non-European legal systems. These include, for example, work on monopoly law and environmental law, as well as the implementation of EU guidelines or the practice of international legal assistance.
