European law has an increasing influence on private law. In the first part of the course, the most important conceptual problems are taken into account. The question of what importance European law can have for national private law is highlighted, and we will look at which instruments are used to harmonize the law.

The second part focuses on several areas where the law of obligations has already been harmonized. Different aspects regarding the conclusion of a contract  and the law of standard contract terms and sales law are taken into account. Besides regulations of European primary and secondary law also reform projects are dealt with, especially the Proposal on a Common European Sales Law (GEK) from 2011. The application and enforcement of European private law aiming to harmonize international private law and national civil procedure law is highlighted as for instance by the necessity of an autonomous European interpretation of law.

In the third part of the course, principles are presented which shape European contract law through existing European law or through the commonality of all Member States.
