LLM European Law course content
This course has five compulsory modules. You also choose another four optional modules to complete your programme.
EU Internal Market and Competition Law (advanced) introduces the notion of an economic constitution and proceeds to advanced lectures in free movement law and competition law. You will examine case law as well as legislation, their implementation and effects in different legal orders, as mirrored in their doctrinal and theoretical reflection.
EU social law (advanced) explores different elements of the European Social model from a critical legal perspective. The European Union is one of the few international organisations that has taken first steps towards integrating social and economic policies of its Member States.
Transnational economic relations and European economic integration focuses on the comparison between both the World Trade Organisation and the European Union, and on the question of whether they do, and whether they should, converge towards a common law of trade.
Comparative Legal Traditions and Globalisation explores the implications of the existence of different legal traditions within an increasingly globalised legal environment.
You will consider the concept of legal tradition, or legal culture, and examine some of the factors that differentiate different legal traditions. While the main focus of the course will be on different Western legal traditions, there is some scope for exploring the impact of the Islamic and Asian legal traditions.
Dissertation allows you to tailor your own programme of training and research in consultation with a member of staff drawn from the school's MA/PhD supervisory panel.
