European Union Law
The course covers the fundamentals of the legal structure of the European Union, with particular emphasis on the law-creating pillar of the Union, the European Community ("EC"). We will also devote some attention to the legal provisions for the creation and operation of the European common market. Examples of legislative and governance instruments for regulating the common market will be drawn primarily from the area of competition (or antitrust) law, which is the oldest supra-national policy of the EC.
