Aarhus, is the main city on the Jutland peninsula in Denmark. With a population of just over 300,000 people, it also holds the title of Denmark's second largest city. Aarhus offers an elegant mix of cosmopolitan city and quaint small town charm, with wonderful pubs and restaurants. The average age of its inhabitants is among the lowest in Europe. This is mainly because of the large student population. Jutland's cultural heart, Aarhus is an exuberant university town with a perfectly preserved old town and a recreated historic village, Den Gamle By. The top draw is the Moesgard Museum of Prehistory, showcasing exhibits from the Stone Age to Viking days and home to the city's most famous citizen, the 2000-year-old Grauballe Man. It's a lively spot, teeming with cafes, restaurants, clubs and cinemas. Aarhus perches on Jutland's eastern coast amid beaches and woodland.

Instead, in an ever-increasing globalised world, the influence of law from outside nation states, has huge ramifications for how the law today is formulated, debated, implemented, obeyed, and enforced.
The course aims to introduce the students to the international and EU legal systems, and to illustrate on the example of climate law how these two systems interact, complement and compete with each other, including their interaction with national law. You will acquire critical knowledge for engaging in discussion on the interplay between the different hierarchical levels of legal regulation, both generally and within the specific field of climate law.
