-
Erwin-Schrödinger-Saal
Plenary / Panel
english language

The different conceptions of US and European law will be discussed with reference to current examples. Can a jurisdiction be challenged outside its own state or organisation of states like the EU? How can national norms as well as national or European law be applied to internationally active companies? Current cases and their application will be discussed in terms of the different legal systems of Europe and the US.
