Short Courses on EU Law and Comparative Law
Since a number of years, the Academy offers two special short courses on European Union Law and Comparative Law respectively, to the attendees of the Private International Law session 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 session, the Academy therefore decided to offer a short ‘crash-course’ on the fundamentals of European Union Law.
In the same vein, an extra course on Comparative Law is 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 session. The course on Comparative Law is offered with the generous support of the International Academy of Comparative Law.
The registration fee for each course is €25. Both courses are taught in either English or French and simultaneously translated into the other language.
