About this course

This is the first module of the three-day course on the legal system of the EU and the most important principles governing the adoption and enforcement of European Union law. The 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. It also offers a short introduction to the four fundamental freedoms within the EU Internal Market.

In this module, you will learn about the system of legal acts that are adopted at the EU level, and a workshop and group discussions will give you an opportunity to read and analyse different EU acts. In addition, a practical case study will help you to better understand the effect that EU law has within national legal systems. Finally, you will learn how to solve cases related to free movement rights that are exercised by individuals within the EU Internal Market.

This module is part of a three-day tutorial. The tutorial is divided into modules to offer you flexibility in adapting it to your needs. If you prefer to attend the other module, you can click on Module 2 or you can attend the full three-day tutorial.
