Vorlesung (2 SWS)


Students will be introduced to various aspects of common law as applied in the United States

- including the U.S. Constitution, property law, contract law, the law of torts and criminal law.

The purpose of the course is to give students an overview of the most important features of

American law and to help them etablish points of comparison with their own legal

systems. The class is well suited for students who are considering LL.M. studies in the United

States. However, such an interest is not required.

University Press, 2005).
