Uitgebreide vaknaam Introduction to International and European Law
Leerdoelen The aim of this module is to provide a broad introduction to and basic knowledge of the international and European dimensions of law, in particular Public International Law and the Law of the European Union. Next to gaining theoretical knowledge, students also learn in a practical manner to recognize and analyze international and European legal apects of a problem, and how to distinguish these from the non-legal aspects, in order to solve concrete cases. The module consists of a series of lectures and working groups. The working groups will aim at discussion between students on the basis of practical assignments related to current issues in international and European law.
Omschrijving The Introduction to International and European Law module consists of two components. Half of the module is dedicated to Public International Law, and will focus on various theoretical and practical aspects of this area of the law, such as decision making at the international level, the role of international organizations, and the international protection of human rights. The other half of the module is dedicated to the study of the basic principles of European Law, such as the structure of the European Union, the compliance with European law and the significance of the internal market. This part of the course focuses on the EU institutional and procedural set-up and the manner in which EU law creates its effects in the national legal orders of the Member States.
