The Law & Language Center has successfully offered the Law & Language Program. This program offered students the unique opportunity to study languages and deepen their knowledge of law at the same time. It also exposes them to international law and the Law of the European Union in other languages than German.

The International Legal Studies has been transformed into a certificate program. Details can be found under "News".

Unter den heutigen Lebens- und Arbeitsbedingungen sind Fremdsprachenkenntnisse für angehende Juristinnen und Juristen unerlässlich, wenn sie langfristig erfolgreich im Berufsleben bestehen wollen. Auch das Verständnis ausländischer Rechtsordnungen, vor allem aber vertiefte Kenntnisse des Völker- und Europarechts vermitteln gerade bei anspruchsvollen beruflichen Tätigkeiten wesentliche Qualifikationen. Mit dem Zertifikatsstudiengang „International Legal Studies“ bietet die Rechtswissenschaftliche Fakultät eine Möglichkeit, diese Kenntnisse und Qualifikationen begleitend zum Studium der Rechtswissenschaft zu erwerben.

Das englischsprachige Zertifikatsprogramm ist zweistufig aufgebaut und führt zu den Zertifikaten „International Legal Studies“ und „Advanced International Legal Studies“. Dabei ist es möglich, einen Ausbildungsschwerpunkt entweder auf das Common Law oder auf das Völker- und Europarecht zu legen. Auch Kombinationen dieser Fächer sind, abhängig vom Interesse jedes/jeder Studierenden, zulässig. Auf jeder Ausbildungsstufe müssen fünf Lehrveranstaltungen im Umfang von je zwei Semesterwochenstunden erfolgreich abgeschlossen werden, um das Zertifikat zu erwerben. Im Umfang von 40 % können auch Veranstaltungen aus anderen Sprachangeboten eingebracht werden. Insgesamt umfasst die Ausbildung Veranstaltungen von (mindestens) 20 Semesterwochenstunden.

Die Ordnung für die Zertifikatsprogramme ist im Juli 2021 in Kraft getreten.

Human Rights Law   (zomm, but first meeting in person)

Thursday 4pm-6pm                                

à International Legal Studies Mehr erfahren

 

The course is dedicated to human rights as an important field of law, with some surrounding considerations of the history and theory of human rights. Human rights are understood to protect basic human needs: this includes the right to life, the prohibition of torture, the prohibition of slavery, but also freedom of religion, rights to privacy, freedom of expression, of assembly and of association – to name but a few fundamental human rights. For each of these rights, questions of interpretation arise. Moreover, human rights are often faced with the tension between their universalist claim (all humans should be protected in those rights) and the limited scope of state obligations (not all states are obligated to protect the rights of all individuals). This leads to questions about the reach of human rights, alternative or overlapping responsibility for human rights violations, and the relationship of human rights and other international law (for instance states’ duty to implement a UN Security Council resolution). The course will equip students with an overall understanding of human rights law: its sources, its history, some principal cases, and basic lines of debates in the field.

 

Current Issues in International Law       (zoom)                 Mondday, 12-2pm

à International Legal Studies Mehr erfahren

 

The course will look at different fields of international law through the consideration of current issues. This includes topis as varied as international law and climate protection, space law, business and human rights, animal rights in international law, international health law (and current issues of vaccinations), problems of the law of the sea, questions of migration, and international trade law. Starting from topical problems, the course will provide an overview on international law: important international treaties, its key institutions including international courts, and the history of its development. The aim is for students to gain a basic understanding of international law and its relevance for contemporary challenges.

 

International and European Refugee Law        (Präsenz)      Wednesday, 4pm-6pm

à International Legal Studies Mehr erfahren

à Specialization International Law Mehr erfahren

The course is an in-depth exploration of international and European refugee law. Starting from the history of international refugee protection, the 1951 Convention and the 1967 Protocol, students will gain an understanding of the foundations and structure of international refugee law. The course will consider developing interpretations of the refugee concept and examine the legal frameworks for contemporary issues in refugee law: the conditions of refugee camps, international responsibility-sharing, the developments around the Global Compact on Refugees. Moreover, the course will look at the role of human rights law for refugee protection, with a focus on Europe and the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). In that connection, the situation at the external borders of the European Union will be examined. A last part of the course will turn to European Asylum Law, especially to the Dublin Regulation and legal questions that arose around Dublin returns in recent years.

Für die in Person stattfindenden Veranstaltungen kann in begründeten Einzelfällen eine online Teilnahme eingerichtet werden. Für ein solches Anliegen schreiben Sie mir bitte unter schmalz@mpil.de<mailto:schmalz@mpil.de>.

Seminarankündigung • Seminar announcement

Together on Earth: International Law in an Interconnected World 

Dear students,  

Introductory meeting:            

Wed., 20 October, 3pm

Dates of the seminar:             

Wed., 24 February 2022, 3pm – 6.30pm Thurs.,

25 February 2022, 9am – 12.30pm            

The goal of the seminar is to explore how international law is faced with an ever more interconnected world, be it in the causes and consequences of climate change, the phenomena of migration, or the pandemic. While international law has traditionally been viewed as a thin layer of norms enabling inter-state coordination and cooperation, the number of international institutions and the amount of international law-making increases continuously. The seminar will offer a space to reflect about those changes, their meaning for international law, questions of legitimacy, and the possibilities of tacking global challenges through the medium of international law. Some cross-cutting readings will be obligatory for all and will be distributed at the introductory meeting on 20 October.

The seminar will take place on 24 and 25 February, with 4 blocks of 1.5 hours, and a maximum of 3 presentations in each block. The four blocks will be dedicated to 1) contemporary theories of international law, 2) climate change, 3) migration and 4) the pandemic. The seminar will be held in English.  Inquiries about dates, topics, organizational questions can be made in German or English. Please reach out to me at schmalz@mpil.de

Interested students can receive a Probeseminarschein for Schwerpunktbereich 4 or 6 pursuant to § 5 Abs. 1 SBPrüfO by submitting a Probeseminararbeit and giving a presentation, or they can write a wissenschaftliche Arbeit as an Examensseminar. You can also write your Legal Research Project within the LL.B. programme. 

Examensseminarkandidaten have to register by 31. July 2021 by mail to Birgit David (b.david@uni-jena.de).

Please add a copy of your ProbeseminarscheinProbeseminarkandidaten should register by 18. October 2021 by mail to Birgit David ( b.david@uni-jena.de).   

Dr. Dana Schmalz, LL.M. (Cardozo)

Jena, July 2021

 

The course is directed both at participants from the Law and Language program and at participants from the Specialization International Law. Accordingly, it will not require prior knowledge of international law or European Union law; however, for those coming with prior knowledge it will offer ample opportunity for applying that knowledge and delving deeper into the issues.
