Building on the existing knowledge of the participants, the course will deepen knowledge of European and international law, whereby emphasis will be laid on those areas in which the dividing line between state intervention (public law) and market rights (private law) has become blurred.
Students will be able to analyze contemporary regulatory techniques inherent in the multilevel system of governance and to assess them from an interdisciplinary (economic and legal) perspective.
The module comprises two courses, one of which will be taught by PD Dr. Meyerholt, and the other together with Prof. Godt.
The first course deals with selected issues in environmental law. With the general structure of environmental law as a point of departure, the course content will be taught in a holistic manner that will also incorporate the leading decisions of the higher courts.
The second course takes into consideration intra-disciplinary environmental law as situated between public and private economic law, whereby special focus will be laid on the European and international dimensions.
