EBS professor advises legislator

2017-11-13 | By: Stefanie Teßner, Press and Public Relations Officer

It’s all about democracy: in one of its most crucial legislative projects of this legislative period, the State Parliament of Hesse is currently dealing with a law with which the electoral constituencies in Hesse are to be reallocated in preparation for the state elections in 2018 (http://starweb.hessen.de/cache/DRS/19/3/05273.pdf).This has become necessary as, meanwhile, the Hessian electoral districts are so different in size, that the constitutionally required principle of electoral equality no longer appears to be guaranteed.

One of the two acknowledged experts heard at the meeting of the relevant committee on internal affairs of the State Parliament regarding the controversial bill on November 9, 2017, was Prof. Dr.iur. Dr.phil. Martin Will, M.A., LL.M. (Cambr.), who is also professor of the EBS Universität für Wirtschaft und Recht (https://hessischer-landtag.de/content/innenausschuss-anh%C3%B6rungen). Professor Will, who has occupied the Chair of Public Law 1, including Constitutional Law, Administrative Law and European Law, at the EBS Law School since 2010, has been one of the leading experts for German electoral law since he published the world’s first, internationally renowned book on the constitutional aspects of Internet election laws in 2002.
