The Court of Justice, in one of its oldest and most known decisions, defined the European Union as "a new legal order of international law", the subjects of which comprise not only the Member States but also their nationals (decision Van Gend en Loos, 26/62).
No doubt that the EU is the most original test of cooperation among States and it is now an integral part of our life.
The course is aimed at providing the instruments to undestand the functioning of this sui generis legal order, through the analisys of the main elements (i.e. institutions, sources of law and competences).
The course is aimed at providing the students with an adequate knowledge and undestanding of the European Union legal order and of the integration progress from which it originated.
At the end of the course, students will acquire the methodological tools and general competences related to the institutional framework of the European Union and the main policies of the Union, will be able to understand and analyse current legal issues of European Union law, and will be able to independently develop possible solutions to open questions.
The first part of the course is devoted to the institutions and to the sources of law of the European Union. In this part of the course, the students will acquire specific knowledge of:
(i) institutions and rules of functioning of the European Union;
(ii) sources of law and decisional procedure for their adoption;
(iii) instruments of judicial protection;
(iv) European citizenship and rights deriving from it;

(ii) the rules on the area of freedom, security and justice;
