Lectures in International Law
General information on Prof. Kreß’ lectures in the fields of international law and international criminal law
Prof. Kreß usually teaches a course on the International Law of Peace and Security (Annex) during the winter semester and the International Law of Armed Conflict (Annex) as well as International Criminal Law (Annex) during the summer semester.
The three lectures are complementary and offer a first in-depth look into the International Law of Peace and Security understood broadly, an area of law that is becoming increasingly important, particularly for Germany. It is recommended though not required that one visits the lecture on International Law I before or in tandem with the aforementioned lectures. It is also very sensible to visit the lecture on International Human Rights.
In addition to these lectures, which fall within specialization field no. 10, there is the opportunity to gain intensive initial exposure to the international dimensions of Criminal Law, another field that is also rapidly increasing in importance. Students interested in this topic should choose specialization field no. 15 and may wish to combine International Criminal Law with European Criminal Law and the Law of Criminal Procedure.
Furthermore, it is possible to combine the three aforementioned lectures with other lectures in specialization field nos. 10, 14 and 15. Such an approach is recommended if a student has a special interest in lectures concerning the International Law of Peace and Security but does not wish to choose a corresponding overall specialization.
Students who would like Prof. Kreß to supervise their specialization seminar will receive a topic in the field of International Law or International Criminal Law, depending on their specialization. Prior to each seminar, there will be a meeting at which assistance with be provided for writing the essay (Annex information on formalities). Moreover, it is recommended that students visit at least one of Prof. Kreß’ lectures on International Law or International Criminal Law.
Students taking part in a Master course and students of international relations are welcome to attend lectures on the International Law of Peace and Security, International Law of Armed Conflict and International Criminal Law.
