European Union: Emerging Constitutional Law

About this Course

This seminar offers students an opportunity to study the developments that have contributed to the dynamic growth of the European Union over the past half-century.  The course is taught in two components.  The first component, taught by an Italian law professor at VLS during January or February, is intended to provide the student with a basic background in European Union law (history, evolving institutional structure, key decisions, etc.).  Classes are scheduled during free periods, in the evenings, and/or on weekends to avoid conflicts with regularly scheduled classes.  The second component, offered during Spring Break at the law school in Trento, Italy, consists of a series of lectures by Italian law professors in English on selected topics of European Union law (private law, criminal law, environmental law, etc.)
