Content

EU law is a complex and fascinating subject that weighs ever more heavily on policymaking in the UK, Europe and internationally. This programme is designed to equip you with the knowledge and understanding of European law required for any future legal career.

The negotiations on the UK’s departure from the EU will raise complex questions, with a possible special status for Scotland (or even renewed calls for independence) adding a further layer of complexity. Even after a so-called Brexit, EU law will remain relevant to lawyers in the UK not only when they are dealing with pre-Brexit questions, but also because any future EU-UK relationship is likely to be heavily influenced by it. Against that background, the importance of advanced knowledge in EU law to employment in the public and private sectors will only increase.
