Minor Law and Justice in the European Union
Do we want more or less integration in the EU? Both as lawyers and as citizens, we are all confronted with this question on a daily basis. Current challenges within the continent and at a global scale, such as growing inequality, seem to call for “more” and “less EU” at the same time. The minor Law and Justice in the European Union investigates integration and disintegration dynamics, their drivers and consequences in specific policy areas and for the Union as a whole, and explores the various ways in which the EU increases and reduces inequality, with a specific focus on the EU private law as an agent of inequality and equality.
This minor helps you to boost your learning not only of the law in its political and economic contexts but also your ability to read, listen, write and argue in English about legal issues, an indispensable skill in many working environments. It will culminate in an intensive moot court exercise, in which you will experience the law in practice.
The minor is organized in three separate courses:
- Integration and Disintegration within European Union Law (6 EC)
- European Private law and Inequality (6 EC)
- Moot Court in European Union Law (3 EC)
- The course is open to Law students and students on a law track in an interdisciplinary study such as PPLE, AUC, European Studies or Business Administration. If you are currently enrolled in a university Bachelor’s programme but fail to meet the admission requirements for this minor, please contact the coordinator. HBO (higher education with applied emphasis) students are ineligible for this minor.
