Basic modules

Basic modules convey basic theoretical and application-oriented approaches of business and economics approaches to sustainability management and sustainability economics as well as interdisciplinary knowledge and skills in environmental, natural and social sciences.
The modules each have a workload of 56 h (contact hours) + 124 h (self-study) and yield 6 credit points.

These five modules must be taken by all students (compulsory modules):

wir812 Environmental Law (Ger.)

General Conditions:
Duration: 1 Semester
Rotation: yearly
Learning and teaching form: Lecture
Teaching language: German
ECTS-Credit-Points: 6,00 CP
Workload:  180 hours of which attendance time 56 hours

Content of the module:

Based on the previous knowledge of the assembled students, European/International Environmental Law will be deepened at Master's level. The course focuses on those fields where the distinction between sovereign intervention ("public law") and market law ("private law") has become blurred. Students acquire the competence to analyze modern regulatory techniques in the multi-level system of environmental law and to evaluate them in an interdisciplinary (economic and legal) way.

The module consists of two courses, the first of which is taught by PD Dr. Meyerholt alone, the second together with Prof. Dr. Godt.
The first course deals with selected questions of environmental law. Starting from the general structures of environmental law, the aim is to teach overall references - including basic decisions of the higher courts.
The second course focuses on intradisciplinary environmental law between public law and (private) commercial law and focuses on the European-international level.

Responsible of the module:
PD Dr. Ulrich Meyerholt
