The Faculty of Law was one of the first faculties created in the Higher School of Economics. Economic and legal disciplines, new innovative courses, fundamental law disciplines and narrowly specialized courses are all equally important for the Faculty of Law. The Faculty's strength is the curriculum's focus on the practical, which perpares its graduates to successfully meet the demands of the labour market.
Level of study: Master
The course’s objectives are numerous but its main purpose is to provide students with the necessary tools to understand and analyze the nature, role and effects of EU law, regulation, proceedings and decision-making. To that end, the first sessions will lay the necessary grounds, that is, introduce historical aspects of the European integration, emergence of EU law, its general principles, main actors and an overview of general institutional design.
After the necessary introductory sessions, we will look at the production and implementation of EU law; the EU institutions; general access to justice; who can become an EU citizen, including a corporate one, and influence the Union’s decision-making; who can become a litigant and influence litigation, and who is actually affected by litigation, including EU Member States.
Largely, half of the course is dedicated to EU law and regulation of various 3 economic aspects, such as EU internal market, EU external economic relations, energy relations, mega-regional integration, and Brexit.
