Course content

Note: This course will be given a new code from spring semester 2006, and you will find all relevant information JUR5440 – EU Substantive Law (discontinued)

This course will cover, inter alia, the establishment of the Single European Market, the Common Customs Tariff (CCT), and the abolition of customs duties and quantitative measures and the Community's external commercial policy. Attention will be given to the interaction between intellectual property rights and the free movements of goods. In the context of free movement of persons, particular attention will be given to the principle of non-discrimination on the basis of nationality.

The focus is on case analysis: to understand and apply substantive principles of EC law as developed by the European Court of Justice (ECJ).

Although students will already be familiar with the institutional aspects of the Community legal structure, the course materials will include a list of recommended reading on this aspect as well.
