Description for 2020/21

This module follows up on the Law of the European Union 1 module taught in the first semester and is designed to explore more fully the substantive (as opposed to the constitutional or institutional) law of the EU. The focus of the module will be on three areas of legislation: Internal market law, with specific focus on the fundamental freedoms, Competition law (with a particular emphasis on measures for combating restrictive practices and the abuse of a dominant position) and European social law (with particular emphasis on equality and non-discrimination in the labour market). The module aims to provide a discussion on the relationships between the economic and the social aspects of EU law, analyse the key mechanisms of market regulation at the level of the Union, develop competent and critical arguments regarding the scope, the success and the limits of substantive EU law and reflect about the nature, the 'ethos' and the legitimacy of the European project.
