Module assignments


This course is part of the 2023 Summer Program.

The course will give you an overview about the most important institutions, principles and the enforcement of European and WTO law. It will focus on the area of European Intellectual Property Law.

The first part of the lecture concerns the basics or foundations of European law, i.e. the history, the institutions, the fundamental principles, and the enforcement of EC Law.

Furthermore, the course examines the law of the common market. It covers the economic policy and the four basic freedoms, that is, the free movement of goods and for workers and the freedom of services and establishment. The law of harmonisation examines the advantages and disadvantages of legal harmonization. The enforcement of law shows how European Law can be enforced as a supranational source of law.

The second part examines the International Economic law, especially the WTO agreement. The lecture focuses on the institutions, principles of the GATT, and the Enforcement of the GATT. The lecture ends with an epilogue about Europe and the WTO in the 21st century.

Two-third of the time is held as a lecture. The rest of the time is used for discussing cases and analysing the line of arguments and arguing the cases (moot-court). Therefore, it is obligatory to read the cases completely in advance.
