Content:
In response to the globalisation of the world’s capital markets the language of communicating financial information to these capital markets is experiencing a similar globalisation: Almost 160 countries across the world either require or permit the use of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Thus, the world may not be far away from realising the vision of a global set of accounting standards. In such an environment being knowledgeable about IFRS is nearly as important for a business professionals as English language skills.
This course introduces you to the framework, concepts, and processes associated with international financial reporting. You will learn how IFRS are developed and used around the world. You will also examine fundamental IFRS requirements and will exercise their application in practice. Thus, the course shall enable you to understand financial statements prepared under IFRS and apply IFRS accounting and disclosure requirements to a wide range of scenarios.

Beschreibung:

This course offers its participants an opportunity to experience, reflect on and apply a goal-oriented approach to intercultural learning. In addition to exploring some of the recommendations offered by researchers on facilitating intercultural communication and deepening understandings of one's own and the other's culture, the course takes on a rather hands-on approach, allowing students to perform cultural mini-dramas, view video clips as the basis for analyzing key concepts discussed, write about critical incidents and discuss evolving understandings of the nature of interaction in intercultural enco­unters.

The overarching aim of the course, therefore, is to develop skills and competences which facilitate an openness towards and understanding of other cultures in local as well as foreign contexts.

Competition Law in Europe and Germany (Vorlesung, englisch)
Vorlesungs­typ:
Vorlesung
ECTS:
8.0
Kurs geeignet für:
Bachelor, Master
Kurssprache:
englisch
Registrierungs­informationen:

The course equips the students with fundamental knowledge about the application of competition law. European and German competition law are addressed equally as well as their relations­hip with one another. The aim is to capacitate the students to apply competition law to concrete cases and help them understand the competitive concerns that might arise from certain behavior by undertakings. The course consists of seven parts:

  • Introduction (What is competition and why do we care about it? What is competition law?)
  • Restrictive practices (Art. 101 TFEU/§§ 1–3 German Competition Act)
  • Abuse of a dominant position (Art. 102 TFEU/§§ 18–21 German Competition Act)
  • Public enforcement
  • Private enforcement
  • Merger control in the EU
  • Merger control in Germany

 

The course focuses not only on the similarities between European and German competition law but also on the differences in the application by the European Commission and courts on the one side and the German competition authorities and courts on the other side. The course also covers distinct features particular to the German Competition Act that are missing in the European provisions, e.g. prohibited conduct of undertakings with relative or superior market power, damages and certain modifications that have been adopted with respect to digital markets.

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.

Course Description:

The course provides a general introduction to German Constitutional Law i.e. the constitution, its background and contents and methods to work with constitutional legal texts.

The German Grundgesetz (Basic Law) which up to this day forms the formal constitutional document of the Federal Republic of Germany has its roots in the allied occupation of Western Germany after World War II. It has proven to be a reliable foundation for the development of the German democratic system and the federal state. The provision of fundamental rights (Art. 1 – 19) puts the Grundgesetz in the tradition of European and North American human rights thinking. It has had an enormous impact on all German law.

Although experiencing some changes throughout the years – especially during the process of the German reunification – the general structure and main provisions of the Grundgesetz remained unchanged.

The course will cover the structure of the German Grundgesetz and its most important provisions while putting a particular focus on the first chapter containing the fundamental rights provisions. Additionally, students will learn about constitutional law in general, the federal structure and the fundamental constitutional principles of the Federal Republic as well as understand the function of the constitutional organs and the legislative process.

Contents:

  • The German legal system
  • Constitutional Law
  • Fundamental Rights
  • Fundamental Constitutional Rights
  • The Federal State
  • Constitutional organs
  • Legislative procedure
  • Public administration
  • The judicial system

Learning Target:

Students will be able to understand the basic principles and most important provisions of the Grundgesetz and solve simple cases regarding fundamental rights. They will be familiar with the structure of the federal state and its function as well as its most important constitutional, administrative and judicial organs. Students can assess by way of comparison similarities and dissimilarities in other legal systems.

Vorlesungs­typ:

ECTS:

Kurs geeignet für:
Bachelor, Master
Kurssprache:

Registrierungs­informationen:

The course equips the students with fundamental knowledge about the application of competition law. European and German competition law are addressed equally as well as their relations­hip with one another. The aim is to capacitate the students to apply competition law to concrete cases and help them understand the competitive concerns that might arise from certain behavior by undertakings. The course consists of seven parts:

  • Introduction (What is competition and why do we care about it? What is competition law?)
  • Restrictive practices (Art. 101 TFEU/§§ 1–3 German Competition Act)
  • Abuse of a dominant position (Art. 102 TFEU/§§ 18–21 German Competition Act)
  • Public enforcement
  • Private enforcement
  • Merger control in the EU
  • Merger control in Germany

 

The course focuses not only on the similarities between European and German competition law but also on the differences in the application by the European Commission and courts on the one side and the German competition authorities and courts on the other side. The course also covers distinct features particular to the German Competition Act that are missing in the European provisions, e.g. prohibited conduct of undertakings with relative or superior market power, damages and certain modifications that have been adopted with respect to digital markets.
