Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course sets out to disrupt students’ dogmatic conception of (private) law. Students will be introduced to important classic and new interdisciplinary Anglo-American scholarship on private law. Students will be able to familiarize themselves with the two most important interdisciplinary approaches for theoretical inquiry into private law: law & philosophy and law & economics. Accordingly (but not necessarily) the course will shift between efficiency-oriented, and morality-oriented texts.
The goal and purpose of the course is to provide students with the opportunity to read and engage with private law theory outside of the boundaries of Dogmatik (formalism).

Assessment and permitted materials

Students will be required to read one text every week. Students will email one question regarding the text before 6 p.m. on Sundays before class. Two times per semester students will write short response papers (3 – 4 pages), which are due on Saturdays before class.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Grades will be based upon participation and the quality of the response papers.
