J.D. Course 462 (cross-listed) | 1 credit hours
The course examines the role the European Court of Justice plays in the functioning of the EU Single Market and in the shaping of European private law. It focuses on the way in which the court has interpreted the EU Treaty in order to ensure effectiveness of EU law, and analyzes some of the landmark cases in that area. The course also shows how the court has dealt with the interpretation of directives, particularly in the field of consumer protection, and what impact this case law has on national law making.
