Studying Law smart


Nomos Verlag publishes the 'Smartbook Grundrechte', a hybrid textbook with learning videos developed by Prof. Dr. Emanuel V. Towfigh and Alexander Gleixner.

Those who want to understand fundamental rights from the beginning of their studies can do so from November 2022 with the blended learning approach of the 'Smartbook Grundrechte'. Thanks to this textbook, students will be able to learn and repeat classically and also use extended content. This includes 67 learning videos, which will be available for free download together with the e-book in the Nomos eLibrary (open access), full texts of the cited court decisions as well as norms and the best practice cases and essays.

Clearly defined learning and comprehension objectives facilitate the learning control. The designated levels of difficulty provide the necessary orientation. Leading decisions of the BVerfG are explained directly and integrated into the exam structure. Every norm, every court decision, all online available essays, monographs, commentaries and handbooks and every further reference are linked. The learning app 'Jurafuchs' is also integrated.

The 'Smartbook Grundrechte' was jointly developed by Prof. Dr. Emanuel V. Towfigh, holder of the Chair of Public Law, Empirical Legal Research and Legal Economics at EBS University in Wiesbaden, and Alexander Gleixner, research associate at this chair. The two authors are looking forward to the publication of their innovative book project: "The Smartbook is a novel learning medium that takes up the insights of modern university didactics and is designed to enable optimal hybrid learning, i.e. on- and offline," explains Prof. Dr. Emanuel V. Towfigh. "We want to offer students a whole new learning experience. Through the videos, the material is first taught audiovisually, then consolidated and deepened by reading the texts. In this way, we address students with different learning habits," adds Alexander Gleixner.

The project was financially supported by the law firm Noerr.

Tip: Anyone who likes to work classically with the printed textbook can purchase the print version in bookstores and in the NomosShop. QR codes make it possible to access the additional digital content.
