Studies in European Union Law

The most important legislative and jurisprudential developments concern the most basic areas of European Union law, such as the four basic freedoms of the Internal Market, judicial and extrajudicial protection, human rights, free competition, state aid, public contracts, intellectual rights etc.

Graduates of such a study program can be employed in the private and public sector, where knowledge of European Union law is required, as well as in a variety of occupations (such as teachers/professors in public schools, executives in companies, lawyers, civil servants, judges, etc.) in which knowledge of European Union law is considered necessary.

They can also seek employment in all domestic and international organizations (public and non-public) that require basic knowledge in legal sciences. Graduates are able, with their interpersonal skills and abilities, to have a communicative role during decision-making processes, as well as to perform the role of negotiator, mediator and arbitrator in conflict resolution processes based on both domestic and international law , e.g. ombutsman (the Office of the Commissioner for Administration and the Protection of Human Rights). Graduates also acquire skills vital for starting a commercial activity at an international level. Effective operation in the highly competitive environment of modern commercial relations requires knowledge of the elements of intellectual property law, economics and specific areas of jurisprudence specific to the profile of a given business. Increasingly complex transactions and legal areas of negotiation such as banking, transport and energy require knowledge of European law. A career in monetary, business and policy within the EU or beyond could be a potential.
