Course Description

If you are interested in European Law, or need to know its basic principles, then this is the module for you. You will examine relevant directives, regulations and case law from the European Court of Human Justice in order to make an informed and critical assessment of how European Law works in practice.

Who is this course for?

This course is suitable for persons who wish to gain an understanding of the operation and effect of European law on the law of England and Wales.

Learning and Teaching

There will be lectures, classroom debate and group workshops. In addition, the tutor may suggest that you read certain newspaper and journal articles, and consult certain internet websites.

Coursework and Assessment

To award credits we need to have evidence of the knowledge and skills that you have acquired. Some of this has to be in a form that can be shown to external examiners so that we can be absolutely sure that standards are met across all courses and subjects. The most important element of assessment is that it should enhance your learning. The Centre’s methods are designed to increase your confidence, much effort having been expended on devising ways of assessing that are enjoyable and suitable for adults leading busy lives.

Assessment for this module is by means of a class test and a written assignment.
