The Law Department regularly receives guest professors from the USA, who offer courses on Anglo-American law in English. The students are confronted with the specific ‘Common Law‘ tradition teaching methods – for example the Socratic Method, with which the lecture material is taught through conversation between the lecturers and students.


The seminars of our American guest professors have generated huge interest in the past. Not only local students, but also guest students were impressed and learned a lot from courses such as ‘Antitrust and Trade Regulation‘, ‘Introduction to the Uniform Commercial Code‘, ‘Contracts‘, and ‘Equality & Non-Discrimination Law in the U.S.‘
