Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The course will introduce students to the key doctrines underlying U.S. and UK corporate law, and the fundamental differences - and similarities - as compared to certain European, in particular Austria's and Germany's, jurisdictions. In addition to examining specific doctrines, we will look at concepts from general corporate theory, often with a legal policy perspective. The teaching method will be mostly socratic, giving students the opportunity to reflect on and actively discuss relevant reading assignments. Materials include U.S., German and Austrian case law, law review articles and excerpts from Reinier Kraakman, John Armour, Paul Davies, and Luca Enriques, The Anatomy of Corporate Law: A Comparative and Functional Approach (2009). Students will be evaluated on the basis of a short writing assignment at the end of the semester.
