Author: Law School

The Ph.D. thesis of Assistant Professor Dr. Yasin Alperen Karažahin titled “Parteiautonomie im Verjährungsrecht – Inhalt und Grenzen” (Party Autonomy in the Law of Extinctive Prescription – Content and Limits) was published in the series “Luzerner Beiträge zur Rechtswissenschaft”. This book series is published by Schulthess Juristische Medien AG, a renowned publisher of law books in Zürich, and includes only Ph.D. theses that are distinguished by a high level of success.

The topic of the book can be summarized as follows: Claims have to be asserted within a certain time limit which is called the prescription period. The requirements of prescription are regulated in the relevant codes and statutes. This book deals with the question whether the parties of a contract can modify the provisions about prescription by agreement. The relevant rules of European codes and statutes have given rise to several problems which have been examined with a historical and comparative research method.
