The role of law in the 21st century can and indeed must be characterised as ambivalent.
On the one hand, law competes increasingly with other paradigms, especially with economics. Furthermore, the subordination of politics and power to the rule of law is still rather a project than a reality in many parts of the world. On the other hand, the juridification of society (and societies) has increased immensely. More and more subject areas are becoming objects of legislation, and thus of national and international jurisdiction.
In this situation, an intense - and often interdisciplinary - ascertainment of the new topics which law has to deal with is required. This draws on the philosophical, historical and comparative fundamentals of law.
The summer school programme of the Law Faculty of the Goethe University aims to balance these interdependent approaches to law and its subject areas using selected examples.
