Prof. Roberto Baratta
Spring semester 2021/2022
The EU Law course is divided into two parts. The general part covers the process of European integration, the Union’s spheres of action, the institutional framework, sources of law, the system of jurisdictional guarantees, the relationship between Union law and domestic law.
The second, special part regards the essentials of internal market law, i.e. the concept of the internal market, the free movement of goods, the free movement of persons, the right of establishment and the freedom to provide services.
Students will acquire knowledge and understanding of both the Union’s institutional system and the internal market law. These objectives will also be achieved through the evaluation of ECJ case law. Students will develop a critical awareness of the Union’s legal system, and will be able to have autonomous judgments based in particular on the correct use of legal language. Students will also develop communication skills as regards the topics of the course with good expressive technique. In terms of learning skills, the student will be able to conduct his/her own evaluation of legal issues by putting into practice the method and learning acquired during lessons and seminars.
