Module overview

This module considers fundamental questions of constitutionalism in the EU legal order. You will examine the European Union (EU) institutions, the separation of power between them, and the modes of exercise of power in the EU. This includes the legal competences of the European actors, as well as the interaction between the EU and UK legal regimes. An important aspect of this module will be to study the theory, enforcement and application of rights in the EU legal order. In particular, you will examine the importance of rights in the EU legal system and the function of economic rights in the internal market.
