Date(s):
Thursday  (weekly) 07.09.2023 – 07.12.2023 13:45 – 15:15 EO 150 AbsolventUM Hörsaal; Schloss Ehrenhof Ost
Description:
During this course students will learn the basic skills and methodologies necessary for the study of literature, especially with regard to anglophone letters and cultures. Students will learn how to analyze poetry, prose, and drama by studying major works of British and American literature from the sixteenth to the twenty-first centuries. The focus will be on the technical as well as cultural aspects of works of literature and their historical contexts. 

The course will start by answering the question what literature and the study of literature actually are and then provide an introduction to the three main genres of literature written in English (prose, drama, and poetry). In discussing these genres, we will take a closer look at key theoretical concepts and tools for the analysis of literary texts. Besides, we will also identify important periods in the history of British and American literature.

Important Note RE: Tutorials
The lecture will be accompanied by mandatory tutorials for which you have to sign up separately. Please note that the tutorials are attached to specific lectures and are not interchangeable. While both lectures will cover the same content, the scheduling might differ slightly between sessions and it is therefore advisable to attend a tutorial with the tutors who are also attending the lecture in question.

Students who register for lecture A (Dr. Kucharzewski) should therefore also register for a corresponding tutorial by Maja Häcker, Lea May, or Jule Remmers.

Description:
Die Vorlesung führt Studienanfänger in das Gegenstandsgebiet, die Methoden und die Begriffe des Faches Neuere deutsche Literaturwissenschaft ein. Sie stellt zentrale Kategorien wie 'Fiktionalität' und 'Ästhetik' vor, behandelt die drei Großgattungen Epik, Drama und Lyrik, bietet einen Durchgang durch die deutsche Literaturgeschichte seit dem Barockzeitalter und erörtert einflussreiche Ansätze der Literaturtheorie. Alle diese Aspekte werden anhand exemplarischer literarischer Werke veranschaulicht.
Als Basis und verbindliche Begleitlektüre für die Vorlesung dient folgende Einführungsdarstellung:
Ulrich Kittstein / Stefani Kugler / Eva Ritthaler: Grundlagen der Neueren deutschen Literaturwissenschaft. Trier: Wissenschaftlicher Verlag Trier, 2019.
Das Programm der Veranstaltung und weitere Materialien können zu Semesterbeginn über die Lernplattform Ilias heruntergeladen werden.
Für alle Teilnehmer der Vorlesung ist der Besuch eines begleitenden Tutoriums verpflichtend, in dem der Stoff vertieft und ergänzt wird. Die Anmeldung dafür muss separat über das Studierendenportal vorgenommen werden. Außerdem umfasst die Veranstaltung ein Online-Tutorium zur Praxis des wissenschaftlichen Arbeitens, das Sandra Beck organisiert.
Zum Termin der Vorlesung: Sie findet montags um 10.15 Uhr statt. Der andere im Portal angegebene Termin (Dienstag, 17.15 Uhr) bezieht sich auf die wöchentliche Zoom-Sprechstunde von Sandra Beck, in der offene Fragen zu dem erwähnten Online-Tutorium geklärt werden können. Bindend und verpflichtend ist hier lediglich die Teilnahme an der ersten Sitzung am 12. September, weil dabei grundlegende Informationen zu den Anforderungen dieses Veranstaltungsteils gegeben werden.

Content
The lecture International Cultural Studies introduces students to basic select topics and concepts related to the field of cultural studies by discussing texts and theories from international scholars. It provides an overview of key terms such as race, class, gender, and identity among others and enables students to understand and reflect upon these key terms and their underlying concepts within their historical, societal, and cultural context. To do so, it raises questions on how cultural texts and practices shape our understanding of society, politics, history and culture.

Organizational Information
There will be 6 parallel groups (International Cultural Studies: Lecture A-F) for this course. You will need to register for one group only.
Each parallel group consists of two complementary sections: a weekly preparatory lecture (45 minutes) followed by an interactive discussion session (45 minutes).
Students will be able to prepare the lecture material on their own time. In each guided discussion session, students collaboratively engage in more detail in topics and concepts introduced in the lecture recordings.
Each recorded lecture will be made available with all other materials (presentations, texts) a week before each discussion session. 

There will be an online introductory lecture on 4 September 2023 at 7pm for all parallel groups. This first session will provide more information on the organizational structure and the content of this lecture. Discussion sessions for all groups will begin in the first week of the lecture period.

Sie ist als Ringvorlesung angelegt und lässt Vertreterinnen und Vertreter der Teildisziplinen grundlegende methodische Herausforderungen sowie Aufgabenfelder der einzelnen Großepochen vorstellen. Das Mittelalter war finster – woher wissen wir das? Welchen Einfluss hat die Geschichtswissenschaft des 19. Jahrhunderts auf die Wahrnehmung von Geschichte? Kann man Geschichte schreiben, während sie noch Teil unserer Gegenwart ist? Letztlich geht es immer wieder darum zu zeigen, was geschichtliches Denken und Arbeiten heißt.

The amount and value of new digital objects appeared due to the ongoing development of information technologies and covered by the concept “digital assets” is constantly and impressively growing.  However, the legal landscape for such objects is still under considerations. The main issue that needs to be resolved to ensure rights of digital assets’ holders is which legal provisions are the most appropriate for the regulation of relations regarding digital assets. Recent legislative findings are considering the possibility to apply property law provisions to the latter. This creates a new concept of digital ownership, which might be implemented on the legislative level, having its specific features in common and civil law systems.

This course aims to both give understanding of the digital assets and ways to protect rights to digital assets in terms of current legislation and case law as well as defining digital ownership as a perspective way to protect rights to digital assets. Based on that, the course covers such topics:

•    Digital assets: notion, types, legal landscape
•    Digital ownership: European and American perspectives
•    Personal and machine-generated data ownership issues
•    Cryptocurrencies, NFT and other crypto-assets
•    Social media and online gaming accounts
•    Digital inheritance

The first topic aims to introduce current approaches to the definition of digital assets, describe types of digital assets and recent legislative findings on digital assets regulation. 
In the second chapter the concept of digital ownership as a type of ownership will be described, current developments on implementing this concept in European and American legal field will be highlighted, the feasibility and necessity of this concept for protection of rights to digital assets will be explained.

The third section looks into the current legal regulation of personal and machine-generated data, including GDPR, Database Directive and Data Act. It also aims to describe the concept of data ownership and its correlation with digital ownership. Issues of correlation between information and data concepts will be discussed in this section.
The fourth chapter aims to discuss approach to legal regulation of cryptocurrencies and other crypto-assets both at the European and national legislative level. It specifically focuses on the issues of NFT, including their transfer and connection to intellectual property rights.
Social media and online gaming accounts will be discussed from the digital ownership perspective. Tradable elements of the account will be revealed, current possibilities to protect rights and get benefits from social and online gaming accounts considering provisions of the Terms of Service will be discussed.

In the section on digital inheritance current issues and instruments to define post-mortal fate of digital assets will be discussed. Possible legal frames for common and civil law to dispose of digital assets will be highlighted, the US experience to solve this issue will be considered.  

Learning outcomes and qualification goals:

This course will examine all major aspects of cross-border litigation as the conventional and most important method of international dispute resolution between private parties. Primary emphasis is on the conduct of international litigation in EU Member States, but there will also be comparative treatment of other major jurisdictions (notably the UK and the U.S.).

After introducing the concept of international litigation and the main policy issues at stake, the course will comprehensively address the crucial procedural law questions lawyers have to deal with when bringing a cross-border civil or commercial dispute to a national court. These include: international jurisdiction (Which court is competent?), coordination between different jurisdictions (lis pendens, provisional measures), conduct of proceedings (service of documents, taking evidence abroad) as well as recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments.

Students who have completed the course will have developed a sound understanding of international procedural law that will enable them to successfully work in a litigation context, be it in the judiciary, a law firm or a legal department. The course is suited for exchange and graduate students (LL.M., M.C.B.L.) in law and related fields as well as for LL.B. students aiming to cover the relevant aspects of international procedural law required for taking the First German State Exam according to § 8 Abs. 2 Nr. 5 JAPrO.

The course will cover the following subjects:
•    Concept and practical relevance of international litigation
•    Advantages and disadvantages of international litigation
•    Sources of international procedural law
•    International jurisdiction
•    Coordination between different jurisdictions
•    Conduct of proceedings

Description:
One of the most significant developments both in international law and international relations throughout the last two decades has been the (re-)emergence of an international legal order based on a robust interpretation of the concept of international criminal justice. By establishing both international and hybrid criminal courts addressing international core crimes such as genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes, the international community has demonstrated an ever more growing commitment to end impunity for the most heinous crimes affecting mankind as a whole and to hold those bearing individual criminal responsibility personally accountable.

This course aims at providing students with a fundamental understanding of this increasingly important realm of public international law. Thus, in a first approach, an overview both of international criminal law’s theoretical foundation as well as its historical sources will be provided. Adjacently, focus will be given to the ad-hoc tribunals of the 1990s (such as the International Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia) and most prominently to the International Criminal Court (ICC) as the first permanent international organization addressing matters of international criminal justice.

Complementary to this institutional approach, the second part of the course will address material law aspects: Besides the abovementioned crimes as stipulated in the Rome Statute forming the International Criminal Court, attention will be given to further international crimes such as piracy or terrorism. Additionally, questions such as immunity from prosecution for heads of state or government, modes of liability, interdependencies between the national and international judicial sphere and notions of state sovereignty will be addressed throughout the course.

International Humanitarian Law (IHL) is a body of rules that seeks to limit the effects of armed conflict. IHL protects those who are not participating in hostilities, and those who are no longer participating in hostilities. This body of law imposes limits on the methods and means of warfare. IHL forms part of public international law and is largely based on treaties and rules of customary international law. 
In this course the development as well as the basic concepts of IHL will be explored. Students will be introduced to the most important documents governing armed conflict, learn how to apply these and will consider the challenges posed to the application of IHL in armed conflicts. A large part of the course will focus on the new developments in IHL including the emergence of new forms of armed conflicts and the development and use of new technologies in armed conflict.

Assessment
Assessment for this course will consist of one writing assignment and one open book exam.

This course on litigation finance will be particularly interesting for students who intend to work in dispute resolution, as inhouse lawyers, or in the litigation finance industry itself, which offers interesting careers at the intersection of law and finance. Litigation finance refers to the use of financial instruments to fund the costs of and transfer the risks inherent in litigation and arbitration. The most prominent of these financial instruments is third-party litigation funding (TPLF). In this practice, a specialized litigation finance provider pays the costs of a party in a lawsuit. If the case is successful, the funder receives a share of the recovered sums. If the case is lost, the funder does not receive anything and loses its investment. This way, the funder invests in litigation similar to a venture capital fund that invests in start-up companies. For claimholders, this means they have to bear neither cost nor adverse cost risk; they pay a success fee only if the case is won. As a result, they can enforce their rights where they would otherwise not have had the money or the risk-bearing capacity to do so. Thereby, TPLF can improve access to justice and serve as a risk and liquidity management tool for businesses involved in lawsuits. In addition, several insurance instruments have been developed and deployed to transfer the risks of legal disputes. In recent years, litigation finance has evolved into a global, multi-billion-dollar industry and has come to play a key role in a wide range of legal disputes, such as high-value commercial disputes, IP disputes, class actions, international commercial and investment arbitration, insolvency cases, or even family and inheritance disputes. Courts and legislators in various countries have noticed this trend and are developing doctrines and regulatory approaches to promote the benefits and mitigate the risks of this growing practice. This course provides an introduction to litigation finance from a legal, economic, and comparative perspective.

Topics that will be discussed include:
–    Legal and economic perspectives on lawsuits
–    Cost and cost allocation regimes
–    Right to access to justice
–    Valuation of legal claims
–    Methods of financing lawsuits
–    Legal and economic aspects of litigation finance transactions
–    Monetization of claims, portfolio funding, law firm funding
–    History of litigation finance in common law and civil law jurisdictions
–    Litigation finance in specific types of disputes (arbitration, class actions, IP disputes, …)
–    Emerging regulation of litigation finance
–    Litigation-related insurance
–    Litigation finance and lawyers’ ethical obligations 
–    Litigation as asset class

Reading materials: 
–    A selection of academic articles and book chapters will be provided.

Exam type: 
–    Students will write a graded paper and, depending on the number of students, hold a graded presentation on a topic in litigation finance.

Description:
One of the most significant developments both in international law and international relations throughout the last two decades has been the (re-)emergence of an international legal order based on a robust interpretation of the concept of international criminal justice. By establishing both international and hybrid criminal courts addressing international core crimes such as genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes, the international community has demonstrated an ever more growing commitment to end impunity for the most heinous crimes affecting mankind as a whole and to hold those bearing individual criminal responsibility personally accountable.

This course aims at providing students with a fundamental understanding of this increasingly important realm of public international law. Thus, in a first approach, an overview both of international criminal law’s theoretical foundation as well as its historical sources will be provided. Adjacently, focus will be given to the ad-hoc tribunals of the 1990s (such as the International Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia) and most prominently to the International Criminal Court (ICC) as the first permanent international organization addressing matters of international criminal justice.

Complementary to this institutional approach, the second part of the course will address material law aspects: Besides the abovementioned crimes as stipulated in the Rome Statute forming the International Criminal Court, attention will be given to further international crimes such as piracy or terrorism. Additionally, questions such as immunity from prosecution for heads of state or government, modes of liability, interdependencies between the national and international judicial sphere and notions of state sovereignty will be addressed throughout the course.

Registration procedure:
International Humanitarian Law (IHL) is a body of rules that seeks to limit the effects of armed conflict. IHL protects those who are not participating in hostilities, and those who are no longer participating in hostilities. This body of law imposes limits on the methods and means of warfare. IHL forms part of public international law and is largely based on treaties and rules of customary international law. 
In this course the development as well as the basic concepts of IHL will be explored. Students will be introduced to the most important documents governing armed conflict, learn how to apply these and will consider the challenges posed to the application of IHL in armed conflicts. A large part of the course will focus on the new developments in IHL including the emergence of new forms of armed conflicts and the development and use of new technologies in armed conflict.

Assessment
Assessment for this course will consist of one writing assignment and one open book exam.

This course on litigation finance will be particularly interesting for students who intend to work in dispute resolution, as inhouse lawyers, or in the litigation finance industry itself, which offers interesting careers at the intersection of law and finance. Litigation finance refers to the use of financial instruments to fund the costs of and transfer the risks inherent in litigation and arbitration. The most prominent of these financial instruments is third-party litigation funding (TPLF). In this practice, a specialized litigation finance provider pays the costs of a party in a lawsuit. If the case is successful, the funder receives a share of the recovered sums. If the case is lost, the funder does not receive anything and loses its investment. This way, the funder invests in litigation similar to a venture capital fund that invests in start-up companies. For claimholders, this means they have to bear neither cost nor adverse cost risk; they pay a success fee only if the case is won. As a result, they can enforce their rights where they would otherwise not have had the money or the risk-bearing capacity to do so. Thereby, TPLF can improve access to justice and serve as a risk and liquidity management tool for businesses involved in lawsuits. In addition, several insurance instruments have been developed and deployed to transfer the risks of legal disputes. In recent years, litigation finance has evolved into a global, multi-billion-dollar industry and has come to play a key role in a wide range of legal disputes, such as high-value commercial disputes, IP disputes, class actions, international commercial and investment arbitration, insolvency cases, or even family and inheritance disputes. Courts and legislators in various countries have noticed this trend and are developing doctrines and regulatory approaches to promote the benefits and mitigate the risks of this growing practice. This course provides an introduction to litigation finance from a legal, economic, and comparative perspective.

Topics that will be discussed include:
–    Legal and economic perspectives on lawsuits
–    Cost and cost allocation regimes
–    Right to access to justice
–    Valuation of legal claims
–    Methods of financing lawsuits
–    Legal and economic aspects of litigation finance transactions
–    Monetization of claims, portfolio funding, law firm funding
–    History of litigation finance in common law and civil law jurisdictions
–    Litigation finance in specific types of disputes (arbitration, class actions, IP disputes, …)
–    Emerging regulation of litigation finance
–    Litigation-related insurance
–    Litigation finance and lawyers’ ethical obligations 
–    Litigation as asset class

Reading materials: 
–    A selection of academic articles and book chapters will be provided.

Exam type: 
–    Students will write a graded paper and, depending on the number of students, hold a graded presentation on a topic in litigation finance.
