This course will provide an understanding of the constitutional foundations of the international competence of the European Union. The course will have a special focus on the procedural and substantive requirements for the application of this competence, and on the effects of international law within the European Union and the Member States.

The course consists of lectures and seminars. Lectures on a particular topic will be followed by one or more seminars, which aim at developing the students’ problem solving skills. For the seminars students are expected to analyse and discuss real and fictional cases, which they will have to present to their colleagues.
