A seminar paper in the area of private law/corporate law is to be written as part of the seminar. This must be submitted to the supervisor by 15.05. 2022, 23:59 at the latest.

The presentation of the seminar paper shall take place in presence and shall contain the essential theses of the paper. The presentation should last approx. 15 minutes.
The use of a Power Point presentation and the provision of handouts are obligatory.
This is followed by a discussion of the content of the respective topic.

A preliminary discussion will take place on 04.03.2022, 13:15-14:45, during which the procedure for choosing a topic will also be explained. The topics can be viewed in advance on Moodle and must be selected via Moodle!

The selection of topics is done on the learning platform Moodle and is based on the "First Come, First Served" principle. It starts on 04.03.2022, 18:00 and ends on 06.03.2022, 23:59.
If you do not choose a topic within this period, you will be deregistered from the course without sanction.
