The students shall develop knowledge and understanding of the historical, institutional and substantive contexts of the European integration and in particular of the regulatory levels of EU law. They shall be able to differentiate between European law problems regarding their economic and legal relevance and to assign relevant legal rules. Therefore, they shall be taught the interpretation and application of relevant legal norms and how to apply these norms on concrete legal cases. In this respect, relevant case law must always be consulted and, if necessary, critically evaluated. On the other hand, especially having in mind dynamic changes in the area of European integration (e.g. as a result of the financial crises and the refugee crisis, "Brexit", criticism of the "democratic deficit" of the EU), it is important to critically examine individual regulatory complexes in terms of accuracy and coherence and to discuss recommendations for legal policy action or improvement. Overall, students will gain a solid overview of EU law and in-depth knowledge of particularly sensitive aspects of EU law and its position between international law and the national law of the member states, especially Germany.
