European Law

The aim of is programme is to provide core European (primarily but not exclusively EU) law subjects at an advanced level, and to apply and deepen knowledge of that law through more specialised courses. The programme reflects the rapid evolution of European law and governance and its unique impact upon the domestic legal orders. By the end of this programme, students should have acquired a sophisticated understanding of the European Union's legal system and its law-making processes, and substantive knowledge of their chosen policy/course strands.
