    2018. XXVII + 337 pages. StudIPR 410.

     

    Is a special sales law needed for consumer or business contracts? The current legal situation is paradoxical and incomprehensible for users.

By so doing, she also contributes to the discussion about a future harmonised European sales law instrument. more

    Who bears the economic risk of accidental loss or damage of goods once a sales contract has been concluded? Can the buyer still demand delivery and must they pay the purchase price? Sebastian Rosentritt pursues these classic law of obligations questions from a comparative perspective and by taking international trade practice into consideration. more

    Der Trust im italienischen Recht. Eine rechtsvergleichende Untersuchung vor dem Hintergrund des Haager Trust-Übereinkommens
    2018. XXVIII + 384 pages. StudIPR 405.

     

    Trusts are an ancient legal construct that were used as long ago as the crusades by knights to organise their financial affairs and secure provision for their families. To this day, the trust has retained (and further expanded) its key position in common law systems. In civil law jurisdictions on the other hand, material reservations still abound as to the use of trusts. By taking Italian law as an example, Leonie Neu shows that this doubt is unjustified and that trusts, with minor adaptations, can play a meaningful role. more

    Europäisches Privat- und Wirtschaftsrecht in der Krise
    2018. XX + 370 pages. BtrIPR 122.

     

    During the economic and sovereign debt crisis in the Eurozone, both European and national commercial and economic laws have undergone a severe stress test – and often passed this test only because of significant ad hoc changes to existing legal frameworks and underlying legal principles. The present volume collects the perspectives of German and Greek jurisprudence on the relevant phenomena. It covers a wide spectrum of substantive problems, ranging from questions of European monetary law and the regulation of the banking sector to matters of public economic law, contract and consumer law, insolvency and restructuring law, corporate and securities and labour law. more

    Wirkungsweise des unionsrechtlichen Anwendungsvorrangs im autonomen IPR
    2018. XXVIII + 538 pages. StudIPR 401.

     

    Within the scope of EU law, the application of national conflict-of-laws rules to cross-border situations can lead to clashes with EU rights to free movement. The EU's principle of supremacy provides a solution to this. Rene Repasi examines its mechanisms and draws conclusions on how autonomous conflict-of-laws rules of member states are influenced by them. more

    The binding effect of decisions adopted by national competition authorities is a key instrument for facilitating antitrust damages actions.

    The rapid advances in mobile communication and mobile internet services often lead to users no longer being able to control the technology – or their tariffs – as desired. The result can be a “bill shock”, the receipt of a bill for an unexpectedly large amount. Eckart Bueren systematizes the relevant German law and analyses the legal system’s response particularly in the field of civil law. His inquiry details the approach of the German Federal Court, critically examining the case law not only from a doctrinal perspective but also scrutinizing it under both [...] more

    In German legal literature, the floating charge has been discussed mainly with regard to its all-assets-encompassing scope. Its actual value for a secured party – the right to appoint an administrator or administrative receiver – has rarely been discussed. Fritz Kleweta shows how the concept could be implemented in Germany. more

The Institute publishes several legal journals and print series in its own name, and its academic staff contributes in a variety of ways to other publications aiming at a scholarly treatment of the Institute’s fields of research. In addition to its own output, the Institute also supports the publication of suitable external research efforts. Particularly in the field of comparative and international law, the demand for thorough academic analysis and clear presentation of research findings extends beyond boundaries based on geography or language. Accordingly, the Institute is part of an international network and cooperates with renowned German and foreign publishing houses.
