Total Law Summer Course on Advanced EU Legal Practice

Central European University (CEU), in cooperation with the Total Law Team, announces its Summer course in Advanced European Union Legal Practice. For the eighth consecutive year, the program brings together around 50 participants from all over the world and from diverse legal and policy backgrounds.  This course will be held from July 2-14, 2012 at Central European University, Budapest

DESCRIPTION: This advanced course is about the practice of European Union Law. The program combines seminars on selected topics, supporting workshops, and individual/group assignments. Through participation in the course activities and interaction with experienced practitioners and well-known academics sharing their extensive knowledge of EU law and its practical operation, participants will improve their understanding of selected EU legal issues and their economic, social and political contexts. The working language of the course is English.

QUALIFICATIONS: The course is addressed at professionals and academics seeking further credentials in European Union law. It also admits advanced students (students in the final year of their undergraduate studies or post-graduate students), who are seeking to embark on professional or academic careers where an understanding of EU law and policy and their interactions is considered essential. The course is thus particularly relevant to civil servants from EU Member States, candidate and neighboring countries, employees of international organizations (including EU institutions), NGOs, interest groups and lobbyists involved in policy-making in fields affected by EU laws and policies, as well as to those considering such positions.
