The task is to broaden the knowledge of the criminal law in general, as well as the problematic - practical approach of applying the institute in specific cases. A good knowledge of the basic institutes of the general and special part of the
penal law is expected from the students. The focus of the teaching is on the analysis of cases from case-law so that study participants get insight into problems of qualification of the beings of criminal offenses and other criminal justice institutes. It is about theoretical processing of individual institutes of criminal law and on the practical application of these in concrete cases.

Teaching methods

Learning delivery:
Teaching will not take place through classical lectures, but on a kind of interactive work where
students together with a teacher will analyze cases from case-law.
1. preview
2. debates / discussions
3. instructional teaching
4. independent work on given cases

Knowledge testing methods

Knowledge of students is checked by the tests organized during the lecture, and the final exam,
so that the results of the tests will be the final grade. Student performance monitoring is also
carried out through the interactive work of students in teaching.


Students need the input knowledge and competence, that is, the learned basic
institutes of the general part of the criminal law and the essence of criminal
offenses from a special part of the criminal law to develop the skill of
analyzing and interpreting the factual state of a particular criminal event,
which should be introduced under the appropriate norm of the criminal law
so that they qualify that event as a specific criminal offense. Furthermore,
students develop skills in interpreting criminal law norms. The ultimate goal
is to train students for independent work.
