Tutorial: EU Law for Non-Lawyers – Full Course

From:  935,00

This three-day tutorial will provide you with a concentrated, in-depth introduction into the legal system of the EU and the most important principles governing the adoption and enforcement of the European Union law.

Registration for this course is closed. Take a look at our latest course: EU Law for Non-lawyers 2019

This three-day tutorial will provide you with a concentrated, in-depth introduction into the legal system of the EU and the most important principles governing the adoption and enforcement of the European Union law. While the first module concentrates on the system of legal acts adopted at the EU level as well as the decision-making process for the adoption of EU law, the second module focusses on various procedures before the Court of Justice of the European Union.

This tutorial will help you to navigate through the ‘jungle’ of various legal acts that are adopted at the EU level and you will gain confidence when reading and analysing EU law-related documents. In addition, you will receive a systematised knowledge of EU decision-making process and you will become familiar with different ways of challenging breaches of EU law before the Court of Justice of the EU.

The tutorial will also offer networking and exchange opportunities between participants. Through different group exercises and group discussions, it offers a very high level of interactivity and enhanced learning opportunities in a small group of participants.

The programme is divided into two modules to offer you flexibility in adapting the event to your needs. Each module can be attended separately.
