The mock case in the final exam is divided in 4 questions, essay style. Students have to reply to every question referring to the relevant CJEU judgments and legislations discussed in the class, and to apply the relevant provisions/case law to the facts of the mock case.
Students who actively participate in the class by summarizing the facts and the content of one of the judgments or solving one of the mock cases assigned for the class will receive a +. Every + will increase the final grade of 0.25 points, up to a maximum of 1 point.
Students are required to attend every class of the course and sign the attendance list distributed during each class. A maximum number of 2 absences will be tolerated per student.
Students who skip more than 2 classes due to prolonged sickness should submit the medical krankmedung to the lecturer. In such case, the absence will not be counted. No other justification will be tolerated (i.e. jobs related reasons).
Students are required to be enrolled on U:space, at least on the waiting list.
Students are required to read the selected CJEU judgments and EU legislation uploaded on Moodle before each class. Each class will include a discussion of the selected CJEU judgments, as well as the analysis of a mock case similar to the case assigned in the written exam.
The course takes for granted a basic knowledge of the functioning of the EU institutions and decision-making procedures. Students who have not previously attended any class of EU law are encouraged to read the textbook Essential EU Law in Text. This textbook provides in a schematic manner an introduction to EU law.
