Science and research news
Publication "The Principle of Directive-Compliant Development of the Law and the Contra Legem Limit"
The article published in "European Review of Contract Law" (ERCL) reveals how legal scholars and the case-law have gradually shown in recent decades a greater willingness to shift from a narrow, traditional boundary of permissible development of the law to a modern line of case-law regarding the boundary of directive-compliant, permissible development of the law.
The book „Juristische Methodenlehre“ (Legal Methods) by Professor Dr. Thomas M.J. Möllers is now available in its third edition. It addresses students, post-graduate students, but also practitioners. The book would like to put all those who apply the law in the position to develop argumentative solutions for unclarified legal questions. Ultimately, the goal is to convince the other party of the value of the legal argumentation - also and especially in the case of a dispute.(...)
This book critically analyses the various approaches of public and private law enforcement and their effectiveness across several jurisdictions on the example of one topical and global collective damage event with far reaching consequences for both, consumers and investors: the Dieselgate. (...)
