Ziele, Inhalte und Methode: The course will introduce students to the key doctrines underlying U.S. and UK corporate law, and the fundamental differences - and similarities - as compared to certain European, in particular Austria's and Germany's, jurisdictions. In addition to examining specific doctrines, we will look at concepts from general corporate theory, often with a legal policy perspective. The teaching method will be mostly socratic, giving students the opportunity to reflect on and actively discuss relevant reading assignments.

Art der Leistungskontrolle: Students will be evaluated on the basis of a short writing assignment at the end of the semester.

Literatur: Materials include U.S., German and Austrian case law, law review articles and excerpts from Reinier Kraakman, John Armour, Paul Davies and Luca Enriques, The Anatomy of Corporate Law: A Comparative and Functional Approach (2009).
