45. Jurisdiction Symposium - New Case Law on Civil Procedure Law of the Austrian Supreme Court and Its Impacts on Liechtenstein

back to overview



Univ.-Prof. Dr. Georg E. Kodek, LL.M.
Dr. iur. Robert Schneider


21.02.2018 18:00 - 20:00


The presentation deals with selected recent rulings of the Austrian Supreme Court on civil procedure. In this context, the focus is laid on general fundamental issues. The rulings to be presented range from the requirements of the determination of the lawsuit through the set-off to issues related to appeal rights, like in case of procedural shortcomings or in procedures allowing provisional injunctions. Numerous rulings concern the procedures of taking evidence. This includes central questions such as the standard of evidence, that is, the required degree of judicial conviction, the (factual) immediacy principle or the use of evidence from other procedures. These questions were recently raised mainly (but not only) in connection with investor lawsuits.

Target Audience

Lawyers, trustees, auditors, legal staff in civil service and in the financial sector as well as any people interested in current case law.
