The aim of the course is to introduce the essentials of Czech private law. Private Law, after 1989, has become again the very basis of the Czech legal order. The first part of the course is aimed at the understanding of the private law system, and its
fundamental notions and principles thereof. Then, the course will focus in more details on the essentials of subjects, property and other rights to things, essentials of contracts as well as essentials of torts. The end of this part of the course is aimed at labour law and intellectual property law. At the end of the course the attention will be paid to the judicial protection of the rights in the Czech Republic. This is aimed at the elements of the judiciary system, the civil litigation and the system of legal remedies.
