AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

European Union Law I

The European Integration process is constantly going ahead through the years, with different speeds and features, according also to the historical period. Studying EU law could be also useful in understanding the legal dynamics of the European integration process and their impact on the Member States’ legal frameworks and on the governance of the regional and global phenomena that they have to face within the legal system of the European Union.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

EU law course is intended to provide students with an adequate knowledge and understanding of the main rules of the European Union. From this perspective, the course analyzes, first and foremost, the institutional set-up of the European Union, the rules and principles governing the functioning and reciprocal relations between institutions, the regulatory sources of the system and their effects in the legal frameworks of the Member States and also the characteristics of the European Union as a subject of international relations. Special attention will also be given to the mechanisms of judicial protection provided by the Treaties in order to ensure the legality of the European Union legal system and the protection of the subjective legal positions resulting from its rules. The third and final part of the course will be devoted to the examination of the material rules governing the internal market and some other policies of the European Union.
