American and European Constitutional Law in Comparative Perspective, Professor Jörg Fedtke (one credit)
This course discusses two key features of U.S. constitutional law – judicial review and federalism – in a comparative perspective. Contemporary European approaches, found both on the level of the European Union and three of its most important Member States – France, Germany and the United Kingdom – are contrasted with U.S. case law and doctrine. The course invites critical reflection of the U.S. model and foreign alternatives; provides an understanding of the deeper constitutional issues underlying the current crisis in Europe; and discusses the viability of transnational constitutionalism. Knowledge of foreign languages is not required.
Antitrust and Merger in European Union Law, Professor Monéger (one credit)
This course will focus on the rules and principles of antitrust and merger law in the European Union and its impact on corporations including U.S. corporations in Europe. Part of the course will be devoted to discussing the conflicting decisions made by U.S. and EU authorities over the past 10 years.
European Union – Institutions and Politics, Professor Iris Canor (one credit)
The European Union is often described as "the largest trading bloc in the world and its political clout is increasingly catching up with its economic might". It is also the most advanced model of transnational integration the study of which illuminates new forms of both international and constitutional/administrative law. The course will focus on issues of constitutional and institutional design of the European Union; some aspects of the establishment of the common market; the human rights design and its politics; and the interplay with other regional and international organizations such as the European Convention of Human Rights and the United Nations.
