FÜM I - public international law part

The first “Cross-Subject Examination” (FÜM 1) serves as a final exam for the first section of the law program at the University of Vienna. The exam tests the students’ knowledge on three subjects: Roman Law, European Union Law and Public International Law. While Public International Law belongs to the curriculum of the third and final section of the law program, students shall also at an early stage of their engagement with law be confronted with its international aspects. Therefore the Syllabus for the FÜM1 gives the students an overview of Public International Law.


The lecture is given in English in the winter semester, and in German in the summer semester. At least one practical exercise course in English and in German is offered each semester to ensure that students in the diploma degree and the IREWI degree benefit from instruction in the language of their exam in each semester.

The Syllabus for the FÜM 1 concerning Public International Law is limited to:

  • Script "Einführung in die Internationalen Grundlagen des Rechts: Einführung in das Völkerrecht", 6th edition, 2023, at the “Facultas Jus-shop”, Juridicum, ground floor or online https://www.facultas.at/juridicum
