In this course you will set your first steps on an exploration of the socio-legal dimensions concerning the integration of markets in the European Union and at the global level. This course will give you a foretaste of topics, which will be revisited and dealt with in greater depth during subsequent courses in the master programme.
During this course students will explore the multidimensional nature of the legal orders (a new development) that lawyers are confronted with in a globalized world. The focus will be on how various above-national legal orders, such as the international and European Union legal orders but also international private legal orders (think e.g. of the Forest Stewardship Council wood certification scheme), inter-relate and how they relate to the values enshrined in national legal orders.
The course imparts in-depth knowledge on European Union law including the law of the fundamental freedoms, EU institutional and procedural law, EU competition law (including EU State aid law), the law of the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) and the law of external trade relations.
This course focuses on the changing institutions underpinning the international legal order and the emerging systems of global governance (that is governing without the traditional forms of ‘government’).

During this course participants will be exposed to perspectives from a variety of disciplines on multidimensional legal orders. Participants will be challenged to relate some of these perspectives to the topic considered in their thesis as well as to critically reflect on value-added of various perspectives, for both policy aims and academic research.
