King’s – Summer Course in Advanced European Law

COURSE OVERVIEW

The course is an advanced course in European Law and is most suited to those with a prior knowledge of European Union law. It is also suitable for anyone at postgraduate level working in a law-related environment with an interest in European Union law. Though applicants with an academic background in law are ideal, this is not an essential pre-requisite to take part. The course is aimed at deepening and/or updating previous knowledge in EU Law. Each lecture will deal with certain selected issues which the lecturer deems of current relevance. The areas will therefore not be covered comprehensively, but selectively. The course is therefore also not suited to those who seek to further their doctoral studies in a particular area.

This course is not suitable for students at undergraduate level.

Normally all applications are accepted, but the Centre reserves the right to reject applications at the course director’s discretion should this be considered necessary either in the individual’s or the group’s interest.

Anti-Discrimination Law – EU Competition Law – Citizenship/Free Movement of Workers – EU Environmental Law – Judicial Review – Enforcement of EU Law – State Aid – The European Court of Justice – External Relations – Free Movement of Goods – Freedom to Provide Services and Establishment – The Lisbon Treaty- Human Rights Protection in the EU – Free Movement of Capital – EU Media Law – EU Company Law – EU Financial Regulation and Supervision
