Summer Course: European Private Law

with preparatory e-learning course

, 29 June 2009 – 3 July 2009

Event number:

Areas of law:

Participants will gain an introduction to the following topics:
  • European civil procedure: The summer course will present the status quo of civil procedural law on a European level, including the most recent developments. Special attention will be paid to EC legislation and the case law of the European Court of Justice.
  • Private international law, especially the new Rome I & Rome II Regulations on the applicable law in contractual and non-contractual obligations.
  • Consumer protection, concerning e.g. unfair commercial practices, e-commerce, consumer rights, product safety, product liability.
This course should prove of particular interest to lawyers who wish to specialise in or acquire an in-depth knowledge of European private law. A general knowledge of EU law is suitable but no previous knowledge or experience of European private law is required to attend the course.

Participants will have the opportunity to prepare in advance through an e-learning course via the ERA website, and to deepen their knowledge through case-studies and workshops during the summer course.

A visit to the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg with the opportunity to attend a hearing is an integral part of the programme.

The size of visitor groups to the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg is strictly limited by the Court for practical reasons. Unfortunately we are therefore unable to guarantee that all summer course participants will be able to attend. Places for the ECJ visit will be allocated to registered participants on a 'first come, first served' basis.
