3 ECTS

The Foundation course consists of 2 distinct parts.

The first part consists of four inter-related parts. First, it addresses the notions of State and order of rules from the perspective of political thought. Second, it introduces the notions of law and power from a legal perspective. Third, it examines the emergence of the State centred world order. Finally, it looks at ever closer integration between States and asks the question of the way forward. 

The second part introduces students to the legal study skills they will need, along with some basic concepts, terminology and study fields, to give them a better platform for beginning their studies and choosing electives.
