We are back with the second part of our property law episode. This time, my guest of the first part – Bram Akkermans – joined me to interview a true expert of property law.
Dr. Jill Robbie is a Lecturer in Private Law at Glasgow University. She did her PhD on Water Rights and was at the moment of recording in Louisiana, helping to research a better property rights system. Did you know that water is seen as a “public thing” over there? Find out what this means in this month’s episode. You can also find Jill’s Twitter here.
This is part 1 of this episode. Part 2 will be released on 17th May 2018.
After months of absence from the area of private law, we finally managed to record another episode on it. In this episode, Bram Akkermans and I talk about property law. We pick up from where we left off in #1 What is Law?: Are animals really objects of property and if so, why? From land to movables: we cover it (almost) all.
Many supranational organisations exist, be it the African Union, the Eurasian Economic Union, or the Association of Caribbean States. In this episode we will focus on just one of them: the European Union. Political parties all over its territory preach euroscepticism, which even resulted in the United Kingdom voting to leave: the infamous Brexit. But what is the European Union, its law, and how did it develop in the first place?
In this tenth episode of Maastricht Law Talk, Andrea Ott introduces us to the world of European Union Law. Andrea is professor of European Union External Relations Law at Maastricht University and member of CLEER. Before starting her current position, she held both assistant and associate professorships of EU Institutional Law. She also taught several courses on External Relations Law and European Union Law in general, both on a Master’s and Bachelor’s level.
This week’s episode is all about the United Kingdom leaving the European Union. With me for a second time is Aalt Willem Heringa – an expert in his field. If you haven’t listened to our episode on constitutions yet, you might want to do that first.
Aalt Willem is Full Professor of Comparative Constitutional Law at Maastricht University and recently started a research blog platform called Law Blogs Maastricht. Click here to find out more.
There are 196 countries in the world, which equals at least 196 constitution-like instruments. But what is meant by “constitution”? Must it be written, or does custom suffice?
Episode 3 of Maastricht Law Talk is all about state organisation. Some countries have presidents, some a Prime Minister, and some even both. What is the difference between sovereignty based on the Crown or e.g. based on a nation itself?
Aalt Willem Heringa is Full Professor of (Comparative) Constitutional and Administrative Law at Maastricht University and the head of its public law department as well as the Montesquieu Institute. He has worked with the Harvard Law School and University of Edinburgh on several occasions. His PhD on “Sociale Grondrechten”, which would nowadays translate into economical constitutional rights, was defended in Leiden where he studied Dutch law. In 2013 he also published a book co-authored with Hetty Geursen “China in blogs en tekeningen” (China in blogs and drawings). As promised in the episode, you can find it here.
Aalt Willem and I talk about
monarchies in the European Union and what is left thereof,
why we need constitutions,
the concept of sovereignty,
democracies and autocracies,
the difference between a federation and a unitary state,
