The aim of the course is to provide a comprehensive overview of the European Union law legal order and its role in the European integration process. The first part of the course focuses on the EU institutional architecture, the legislative and decision-making process in the EU, as well as the system of remedies for enforcing EU law and judicial review. In the second part of the course, students acquire a deeper understanding of the legal framework of EU economic integration and the rules governing the EU internal market. The role of competition and state aid law in building the internal market is also examined in the course. All topics in the course are dealt through particular attention to the leading case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union and using the case method of instruction. The course is designed to provide students with a wide understanding of the EU legal system, as well as a basis for further study of EU legal integration.
