European Union Law


The first half of the semester provides students with an intensive introduction to EU Law (post-WWII history of European legal integration through Brexit; legislative and executive institutions; courts; internal market; competition law; commercial policy; human rights and migration). Readings and in-class discussion emphasize the impact of trade and legal harmonization upon politics and wealth distribution. Meanwhile, in consultation with the instructor and Law Library staff, students develop individual research projects and produce thick outlines. The second half of the semester is devoted to students' presentations of their work in progress. A polished paper is expected of each student by the end of the exam period. Shorter response papers may also be required. A limited number of second-year law students will be allowed to satisfy the upper-class writing requirement through this seminar with the instructor's approval (first come, first served). This seminar is open to law students, graduate students in International Relations, and advanced IR majors. As it originates in the Law School, it will follow the Law School's calendar and time schedule. GRADING NOTICE: This class does not offer the CR/NC/H option.
