The Summer Courses on Private International Law contain frequent references to European Union Law and Comparative Law. For registered participants/attendees who are not familiar with these fields, the Academy offers two extra courses.
Course Day 1:
The Fundamentals of European Union Law
Date and time to be determined.
Course Day 2:
Saturday 1 August 2020
9.30 a.m. - 5.00 p.m.
This year, for the fourth time, The Hague 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 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’ on the fundamentals of European Union Law. The date and time of this course are still to be determined and will be communicated as soon as possible.
In the same vein, an extra course day on Comparative Law will also be organized, focusing on the existing main legal systems of which a basic knowledge is also required to be able to follow some of the courses of the Private International Law period. This course will be held on Saturday, August 1st, 2020, from 9.30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Both courses will be taught in English and are simultaneously translated into French. Participants are invited to register for one or both extra courses at the cost of 25 € per course.
