Course Contribution Description

At the Faculty of Law of Universitas Gadjah Mada the courses are shared by several lecturers. This website informs about the contents of my lectures on 18.03., 23.03., 25.03., 08.06. and 10.06. They complement those of my colleagues from the perspective of comparison of laws with a special focus on German administrative law. The comparative approach is helpful for a better understanding of the own national administrative law, its particularities, strong and weak points and the perspectives of its development.
