ContentDie Vorlesung beginnt mit einer allgemeinen Einführung in das Recht (was ist Recht?) und situiert das Umweltrecht in der schweizerischen Rechtsordnung. Anschliessend folgen die Darstellung der Rechtsquellen sowie die juristische Methodenlehre, insbesondere die Auslegung und Anwendung von Rechtsnormen. Darauf aufbauend behandelt die Vorlesung die Ziele und Grundsätze des Umweltrechts, zeigt die rechtlichen Handlungsformen auf, insbesondere die Verfügung. Die Studierenden lernen die grundlegenden Schritte der Rechtsanwendung bzw. eines Verwaltungsverfahrens kennen. Sie erhalten auch einen kurzen Überblick über das Bau- und Planungsrecht. Ein Block zum europäischen Umweltrecht rundet die Vorlesung thematisch ab. Integrierte Fallbeispiele und Falldiskussionen zeigen die Praxisrelevanz auf und bieten Gelegenheit zur aktiven Mitarbeit der Studierenden.
