This programme will enable you to understand and evaluate these contemporary debates in European public law. Particular areas of study include: ? The key relationship between European and national legal systems ? The nature, form and function of the European institutional structures ? The way substantive European law regulates relationships between individuals and the state You will examine both the major constitutional questions of European law and areas of particular European legislative and judicial activity.
