July 9, 2021

The certificate program of four hours was delivered in December 2019, in the framework of the Harmonisation of Principles of Insurance Law in Europe under the Erasmus+Jean Monnet Module, coordinated by Dr. Ayşegül Buğra. The program had the purpose of presenting to the students the provisions of Principles of European Contract Law (PECL) as an instrument of harmonization of general contract law, in comparison with the corresponding provisions of Turkish Code of Obligations. To this effect, the function and applicability of PECL as well as the content of some of its provisions were presented and students were provided with a critical approach to these provisions in light of the above mentioned comparations.
