LC2S120/LC3S120 Law of the European Union Course Information Welcome to the module. The teaching team wish you every success with your studies and hope you find it enjoyable. Please note these are brand new modules, as the LL.B course has been revalidated which is required to happen on a periodic basis. You will find past examination papers helpful in preparing for your examination, as the questions will be of a similar standard to yours, but please note that the sequence of topics is different this year from previous years and the sections will be different. Aims of the Module For those of you studying at Level 5 (i.e. if you are enrolled on LC2S120, which in the vast majority of cases is single honours LL.B students) the aim of the module is: On completion of the module students should be able to promote an understanding of the European Union’s legal system by examining key aspects of its public, administrative and substantive law. For those of you studying at Level 6 (i.e. if you are enrolled on LC3S120, which in the vast majority of cases is Major/Minor/Joint students): The aim of the module is to promote a critical understanding of the European Union’s legal system by examining key aspects of its public, administrative and substantive law. Synopsis of Module Content 1. The history and development of the European Union. 2. The development and role of primary and secondary sources of law and the development of the general principles of law by the European Court of Justice (ECJ). 3. Analysis of the role and functions of the ECJ as provided for in the Treaty of Rome (as amended). 4. Analysis of the “fundamental freedoms”. Learning Outcomes For Level 5 the Learning Outcome is as follows: Analyse a range of EU public law issues; EU administrative law and the “fundamental freedoms”. For Level 6 the Learning Outcome is: On completion of this module, students should be able to critically evaluate a range of EU public law issues; EU administrative law and the “fundamental freedoms”. Please note that Level 6 students are expected to perform at a higher level than Level 5 students, as the former have to show a degree of critical evaluation in order to pass the module whereas Level 5 students have to show a degree of analysis in order to pass. We will be discussing the significnce of this in early lectures and workshops, as well as showing examples of what is required. Assessment Requirements Level 5 1

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
