Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The Ius Commune Moot Court - The Imperial Aulic Council aims at introducing participants to a fascinating example of legal pluralism, the Ius Commune as it was practiced in the early modern period. The focus is on the application of Roman Law, Canon Law and the great variety of particular laws that existed in early modern Europe. The Ius Commune Moot Court is concerned with "law in action" rather than "law in the books". The jurisdiction of the Imperial Aulic Council, one, if not the the most important court in the world of the Ius Commune and located in Vienna most of the time serves as a point of reference for the Ius Commune MC.
