In the French law journal Actualité Juridique Droit Administratif (AJDA),our research associate Maximilian Gerhold has published a comparative analysis of the standards for the impartiality of constitutional judges. The incentive were the decisions of the Federal Constitutional Court on the "Dinner at the Chancellor's Office" (2 BvE 4/20, 2 BvE 5/20 and 1 BvR 781/21). The article can be found in issue 7, p. 392 ff. (Subscriber access via- https://www.dalloz.fr/dalloz).
The research from summer 2020 on the topic "Data Spaces as a Resource for Power" ("Datenräume als Machtressource") will be finished and results will be published in the course of the winter semester.
Starting in 2021, the chair will focus on conflicts of law in a data regulation context.
Research will be focused in an interdisciplinary project with colleagues from Passau, funded by the Bavarian Research Institute for Digital Transformation (Bayerisches Forschungsinstitut für digitale Transformation, bidt).
In addition, the chair will work on data protection law and the professional law of lawyers and tax advisors. Future research areas will be the law of statistics and disaster law.
Lectures, courses and seminars offered by the members of the Chair cover public law (constitution law, administrative law), information law and media law. Lectures on "Allgemeine Staatslehre" (general state theory) and constitutional history are given on a regular basis. Occasionally, professional conduct and legal history is taught.
The Chair's law clinic helps start-ups from the Passau region and student entrepreneurs.
