Learning objectives
The aims of the course can be listed as it follows:
1.Giving students a complete knowledge about European Union Law and developing the ability of understanding of the process of European integration and of the rules and principles which regulate the relationship between EU law and national law, in particular Italian law.
2.Developing the ability to work with principles and legal rules, in a personal and thoughtful way. Students will be expected to successfully apply the legal notions learnt during the course to practical cases, through the study of official documents of the EU and, in particular, of the case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union.
3.Improving students' independent thinking, convincingly debating and putting forward arguments with respect to the subjects of the course.
4.Acquiring legal terminology skills. Students are expected to express the knowledge acquired during the course in a coherent, well-argued fashion as well as with proper legal terminology.
5.Developing autonomous learning skills, so that - once they have acquired the basic skills - students can further develop and update their knowledge of EU law, by applying the legislative framework as well as the relevant case law, also at a national level.
6.Giving students notions which can be useful for them in a multi-disciplinary prospective;
7.Arousing interest for the other optional courses dealing with EU Law;
8.Developing a background of knowledge and competences which can be useful for students' professional careers (as lawyers, judges, etc.)
Expected learning outcomes
By the end of the course, students will be expected to have acquired: (i) an adequate knowledge and understanding of the European integration process and of the rules and principles which regulate the relationship between EU and national law (in particular, Italian law); (ii) the ability to work with principles and legal rules, as well as to apply the notions learnt to practical cases; (iii) the ability to interpret the legal rules studied and to take properly argued and legally sound positions on the subjects of the course; (iv) a deep knowledge of the legal terminology related to EU law; (v) the basic skills to further develop and update their knowledge of EU law.

Course syllabus
The course aims, first, at providing an in-depth knowledge of the European Union institutional framework, which has significantly changed following the entry into force of the Treaty of Lisbon, as well as its relationship with the national legal systems. In particular, the analysis will focus on the complex legal framework that forms the EU legal system, in light of its legal sources, its founding values and objectives, including the distinctive role played by the case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union. Accordingly, the course will examine the relationship between EU law and na-tional law, by highlighting the issues related to the progressive integration between autonomous (albe-it coordinated) legal systems, also with reference to the judicial protection mechanisms. Particular attention will be paid to the protection of fundamental rights by the European Union.

In this first part of the course, following topics will be discussed: European Community and Europe-an Union. The evolution of the EU legal system from the founding Treaties to the Treaty of Lisbon. The principles of conferral, subsidiarity and proportionality. The competences of the European Union. Institutions, bodies and organisms. In particular, the European Parliament, European Council, Coun-cil, European Commission and European Central Bank. Structure and powers. The Court of Justice of the European Union and the judicial system (with specific attention to the dialogue between the Court of Justice and the national courts). The acts of the European Union: sources of law, distinctive features and legal effects. EU law and national law (the implementation of EU law in the Italian legal order). Protection of fundamental rights.

The second part of the course aims at providing an overview of the most important aspects of EU substantive law, with a specific focus on the internal market regulation, and particularly on the four fundamental freedoms.

The following topics will be discussed in the second part: EU citizenship and the free movement of persons, the freedom of establishment and the freedom to provide services. The free movement of goods and capitals. EU competition law. State aid law.

Students who, after having passed the exam named "International law and European Union law" (Sciences of Legal services, 12 credits), would like to obtain the recognition of this exam as European Union law (Law degree - single-cycle programme), are requested to take a supplementary exam with the professor of the respective chair (according to the following subdivisions: A-D, E-N, O-Z). The object of the exam will be the following sections of the syllabus of the European Union law course:

II. Special part. Substantive law: EU citizenship and the free movement of persons, the freedom of establishment and the freedom to provide services. The free movement of goods and capitals. EU competition law. State aid law.
Prerequisites for admission
The course of International Law (9 CFU) is preparatory to European Union Law. Students are not admitted to EU Law exam if they don't have previously passed the exam of International Law.
Teaching methods
The course will be taught mostly through lectures; they offer a complete picture of the topics above listed; attendance allows the development of the notions and competences required to pass the exam.
Some of the lectures could be taken by scholars, lawyers, experts.
