Undergraduate Module Descriptor
LAW3157B: European Union Law
This module descriptor refers to the 2022/3 academic year.
EU law remains important despite Brexit. Firstly, the EU has been a source of inspiration for a considerable amount of law that is now retained and applied in England and Wales. Secondly, the UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement strongly indicates that the EU will remain a significant UK trading partner for the foreseeable future. The purpose of this module is therefore to provide you with a foundational understanding of EU law, which will help elucidate aspects of English and Welsh law, and which will equip you with the knowledge and perspective needed for an outward-looking and globalised practice.
