ES 501 The European Union as a New Legal Order
This course looks at the EU system as an additional constitutional system, which has been added to existing national systems. Some of the debate will focus on whether this new system will replace national systems or somehow be adduced. The course will dwell upon the legal basis of progress from economic to political union and trace the continuously evolving relationship between the citizen, the EU and the national legal systems. Towards this end, select Treaties, cases from the European Court of Justice will be analysed for a clearer perception of the new legal structure and processes.
