According to the Discipline-Specific Regulations for MANIA, this module „conveys knowledge about the legal factors affecting administrative work in the national and supranational contexts. Students will learn the basic structures of German administrative law, but also focus their attention on the Europeanization of administrative law”.
In this sense, this block seminar includes 11 topics dealing with the system and hierarchy of sources of administrative law, the rule of law principles for administrative procedures and decisions, forms of administrative action under public law and private law, the administrative structure and organisation in Germany and the EU and the administrative implementation of EU law, the legal status and administrative tasks of local authorities in a European comparison and the impact of EU law in different fields such as environmental law, the simplification of establishment and service provision, and the regulationof network industries. Finally, the German system of judicial proceedings before administrative courts (again including EU impact) and the state liability of the EU and of member states for violation of EU law will be examined.
The module exam comprises an oral presentation of approx. 30 min. and an associated term paper of 15-20 pages. As a supplementary exam work, a research exposé of approx. 5 pages followed by a feedback reflects the mid-term processing status.
Pre-existing legal knowledge in the field of constitutional, administrative, and EU law is not required but beneficial.
