EU Procedural Law (in English)

(winter semester 2013 – lecturers : dr. Sikora and dr. Kalėda)

We are delighted to inform you that, starting from the winter semester 2013, the Chair of European Law will propose a new course on „EU Procedural Law”, taught jointly by dr. A. Sikora and dr. S.L. Kalėda, visiting lecturers, who both are practicing EU law as référendaires at the EU Court of Justice and the General Court, respectively.

The course is addressed to students willing to develop a thorough understanding of legal issues related to the proceedings before the EU judiciary. We will aim at giving you comprehensive knowledge of direct remedies available at the EU courts, and how to use them, as well as making you acquainted with legal intricacies of the mechanism of preliminary references from the national courts. This knowledge should allow you to engage in academic discussion on variety of modern topics related to the on-going procedural reform of the EU judicial architecture. Besides this theoretical background, the course will address practical issues of litigation before the EU courts, which we consider most relevant for national lawyers and judges.

The lectures will start November 15, 11h30-17h00 (at room no 314, ul. Olszewskiego 2) and will be subsequently scheduled as follows: November 29, 11h30-17h00; December 13, 11h30-17h00; January 10, 11h30-17h00; January 24, 11h30-17h00.
