Internationales Umweltrecht/International Environmental Law The lecture is directed to law students, particularly those participating in the Schwerpunktbereich 6: Völker- und Europarecht, as well as to students enrolled in the master programme Internationale Politik und Internationales Recht. A basic knowledge of public international law is desirable but not a prerequisite. Optimally, students have already participated in Völkerrecht I or are attending both International Environmental Law and Völkerrecht I during the same term. As the working language of the course is English the lecture is open to students participating in level 4 of the Law Faculty’s Fachspezifische Fremdsprachenausbildung (FFA). They will be given the opportunity either to obtain a certificate of regular attendance or to pass an examination, thus enabling them to fulfill the requirements for the FFA certificate. Students from other faculties are welcome to attend the lecture. All students will be given the opportunity to take an examination (in English) at the end of the term. The focus of the lecture is public international law relating to the conservation of the environment. The law of the European Union relating to environmental protection will be addressed in more detail towards the end of the lecture. The lecture covers the historical development of international environmental law, fundamental cross-cutting issues such as inter alia sources, actors, principles and competencies and the regulation of different more specific issues such as e.g. the conservation of biological diversity, water and the marine environment, air, the ozone layer, climate, as well as the disposal of hazardous wastes and substances.

Second exam on March 27 is only for IPIR students!!!!
