The EU treaty (Treaty for the functioning of the EU Dec. 2011), all legal texts (regulations and irectives, EU decisions) can be found directly from the EU site. EU Court of Justice cases are to be found through http://www.curia.europa.eu
There is no prerequisite for taking this class in European Law (students may catch up in reading chapters 1, 2, 3 of the casebook), or in economics or US Antitrust and Merger control. The course focuses on the legal analysis and comparisons will be made with the American system (US Sherman and Clayton Acts) from which most of the rules derive. Students are expected to read the referred pages fo the casebook and documents before class to allow a better discussion in class.
Classes are scheduled on a 2-week course 5:30 - 8:25pm Mon - Thursday, starting Monday, June 3rd; ending Thursday, June 13th.
Computers are welcomed in class in so far as they are used for extraneous Internet connections except if asked to go to the EU site.
