MELS 2022-2024

About the programme

The programme is designed to achieve two principal aims:

  • to provide an initial background to the fundamental issues underlying the European integration process; and
  • to offer progressive and increasing specialisation in the vast field of European law, with a view to enabling students to deal with legal questions in a practical way.

The legal focus of the programme is on the broader ambit of European integration, also touching upon different economic and political aspects of the integration process and duly considering their legal and practical implications.
