European Legal Order
What is the European Union and how does it work? The E.U. remains our single largest trading partner and among our most important political allies around the world. And yet, as an institution of governance, the E.U. itself is often poorly understood. This course examines the basic legal architecture of the European Union, and core substantive law from free trade principles to common citizenship and fundamental human rights. It will cover what every lawyer and legal scholar should know about the Union and its path from common market to body politic. Several international visitors will join the class for specific sessions throughout the term.
(A research paper may be written for this course in lieu of taking the final exam.)
