Special Short Courses on European Union Law and Comparative Law

This Summer, for the fourth year in a row, the Academy will organize two special short courses on European Union Law and Comparative Law, exclusively for the attendees of the Private International Law period of the 2019 Summer Courses. The lectures of the Private International Law Courses often refer to EU Law. This can be a source of difficulty for those Academy attendees who come from non-European countries or from countries where this field of law isn’t taught. To help attendees better understand the courses of the Private International Law period, the Academy has decided to offer a short ‘crash-course’ at the start of the period on the fundamentals of European Union Law. This course is scheduled to take place on Sunday, July 28th, from 9.30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
