The final written exam will take place via the Moodle platform: the day of the exam, students will be able to download the text of the exam from Moodle as a Word file. Students will have 2 hours' time to reply to the questions and to upload the right answer on Moodle.
The final exam will be structured as a mock case, including 4 questions. 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 virtual class of the course. A maximum number of 2 absences will be tolerated without the need of any further justification.
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.
