OVERVIEW

The course is devoted to an examination of the rules of private international law and procedural law of EU derivation in civil and commercial matters; the aim is to provide course participants with advanced skills in jurisdiction, competence, applicable law and the free movement of decisions in the European judicial area.

EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

The examination is oral, held in person and only during official exam sessions. It usually consists of three questions on the topics of the programme, and lasts approximately 15 minutes.

In addition, and exclusively for those who attend two-thirds of the lectures in person, the lecturer may possibly introduce one optional tests at the last class (multiple choice questions) that exempts from the oral examination.

It should also be noted that attending in-person at least 50% of the lessons allows students be examined on the programme for 'attending students'.

ASSESSMENT METHODS

Exams aim to test whether the student is able to identify, understand and apply the rules of private international law covered in the programme, as well as to use appropriate legal terminology.
