3.00 ECTS (2.00 SWS), SPL 3 - Rechtswissenschaften
Continuous assessment of course work

By providing the legal framework for monitoring the subsidies granted by the EU Member States to their private undertakings, State aid rules aim at ensuring a level playing field among the companies active within the EU internal market. State aid rules, therefore, complement the EU competition and free movement rules. The course analyses the EU State aid rules included in Art 107 and 108 TFEU. In particular, the course discusses the interpretation of the EU Court of Justice (ECJ) in relation to these provisions of the Treaty, as well as the system of enforcement of EU State aid law. Finally, the course discusses the application of State aid rules in relation to Services of General Economic Interest.
The course is suitable for students interested to deepen their knowledge and understanding of EU law, in a specific policy area like State aid law.
