Nach einer sehr erfolgreichen Durchführung in den letzten Jahren hat CHSH gemeinsam mit Univ. Prof. Dr. Susanne Kalss (Abteilung für Zivil- und Unternehmensrecht, WU Wien) von 28.-29. März 2008 das Seminar „Rechtsfragen des Konzerns“ veranstaltet. 

10.03.2008, CHSH-Talk „Recht und Oper“

Viele Juristinnen und Juristen lieben die Oper. Aber dankt es Ihnen die Oper auch? Oder kommen Juristinnen und Juristen in Opern nicht meist als merkwürdige, weltfremde Personen vor? Der CHSH-Talk „Recht und Oper“ beschäftigte sich deshalb mit der Rolle der Juristinnen und Juristen in der Oper, aber auch mit Rechtsproblemen aus oder im Zusammenhang mit Opern.
