The course will provide a sound foundation knowledge of the fundamental processes of European law and legal institutions, including any treaty frameworks of the European Union and the Council of Europe and the legislative process of the EU; it will introduce students to selected case law of the European Court of Human Rights and the European Court of Justice and assist students in understanding the approach of those courts to the interpretation of international legal norms; it will also provide students with an understanding of the relationship between European law and English law.
These learning outcomes have been designed to dovetail with the requirements of the professional bodies for Qualifying Law Degrees.
