The purpose of this module is to equip you with a thorough understanding of the key features of the European Union and its legal order. The European Union is the product of several decades of economic, political and legal integration between its Member States. Given the significant impact of EU law and policies on the Member States, understanding this area of law is vital for any practicing lawyer. The study of EU law is also extremely rewarding from a more academic perspective, as it teaches us important lessons about the interaction between different legal orders, the limits of State sovereignty and the role of international institutions. A part of the course will focus primarily on the institutional and procedural law of the EU, while another part of the course will be concerned with the rules governing certain key substantive policy areas, in particular the law relating to the internal market.
