FÜM I - public international law part

The first “Cross-Subject Examination” (FÜM 1) serves as a final exam for the first section of the law program at the University of Vienna. The exam tests the students’ knowledge on three subjects: Roman Law, European Union Law and Public International Law. While Public International Law belongs to the curriculum of the third and final section of the law program, students shall also at an early stage of their engagement with law be confronted with its international aspects. Therefore the Syllabus for the FÜM1 gives the students an overview of Public International Law.

The Syllabus for the FÜM 1 concerning Public International Law is limited to:

  • Script "Einführung in die Internationalen Grundlagen des Rechts: Einführung in das Völkerrecht", 5th edition, 2017, available (presumably starting 9th of October) at the “Fakultätsvertretung Jus”, Juridicum, 1st staircase, 1st floor (for the FÜM I in October and November 2017 the 4th edition, 2015 can still be used).
  • Introductory Lecture: The corresponding slides can be downloaded from the Moodle platform. To access the course on Moodle registration for course 030477 through the course directory is required.

The use of codes or other sources such as the UN Charter is not permitted for the part on Public International Law during the FÜM 1 examination.
