Würzburg Law Writings

Published by the Faculty of Law of the University of Würzburg

The series Würzburger rechtswissenschaftliche Schriften, which has been in existence since 1994, publishes the research results of legal scholars affiliated with the Faculty of Law in Würzburg.

The faculty was established with the founding of the University in 1402 and is thus one of the oldest law faculties in Germany. In research and teaching, special attention is paid both to the fundamentals of jurisprudence, such as the philosophy of law and the history of law, and to questions of the internationalization of law. Current and for the future important legal issues of the energy transition, data protection, the regulation of artificial intelligence and other sub-areas of digitalization as well as the reception of neighboring scientific findings are investigated in numerous research projects and specially founded research centers.

A special focus is on European law, which is also cultivated, for example, within the framework of an accompanying and postgraduate course. Every year, numerous legal scholars from all over Germany and Europe gather in the ballroom of the Neubaukirche for the Würzburg European Law Days to exchange ideas on current topics in European law.
