European Private Law - Key Concepts, Methods and Developments

Dates:
  • Mon 13 Nov 2017 15.00 - 17.00
  Add to Calendar 2017-11-13 15:00 2017-11-13 17:00 Europe/Paris European Private Law - Key Concepts, Methods and Developments

6 credits

The seminar introduces to the richness of European Private Law – it is multi-layered, dynamic, puzzling, yet it is true private law as well. For bringing to students as much as possible from the thrill of European Private Law – but also from private law more generally –, the seminar tries a set of combinations. It tries to combine genuine private law problems – selecting some of the most important ones, the “corner-stones” – with three dimensions. Modern problems such as information and digitalisation are to be found aside more traditional (“eternal”) ones like breach of contract. In the first dimension, private law problems are combined with the problems raised by a multitude of legal systems, in the second with that of a private law embedded in a legal regime which aims also at the public good (including constitutional values). Finally, there is the third combination which reaches beyond private “law” in the narrow sense. It will be difficult for you truly to “understand” private law without (some of) the most important social sciences (interdisciplinary) bases of private law.
