CREDITS 2 (LV) 3 (ECTS) - 30 Contact Hours

The aim of the course is to give a good theoretical and practical insight into dealing with private law cases with significant internationality / foreign elements. The course covers the most central areas of international and European civil procedural law (international court jurisdiction in civil and commercial cases, and recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments) and conflict of laws (applicable law issues). The course highlights subject areas covered by relevant European regulations, but does not fall short of touching upon issues outside of the scope of European law harmonization.
The course consists of lectures and seminars. Lectures in a particular topic will be followed by one or more seminars, which aim at developing the students’ problem solving skills. For seminars students are expected to analyze and discuss real and fictional cases, often in form of individual student presentations.
