LAWS 7742 European Union Labor and Employment Law (Spring: 2 )

Course Description

The existence of a “European social model” is sometimes recognized/challenged. What it means & what inspiration can be drawn from its understanding is one major objective of this course. Using comparisons with the US system and taking into account the challenges of globalization & regional integration, the focus will be on the various aspects of the social dimension of the EU. We will place special emphasis on the relationship between German and European law. The class begins with an explanation of the legal basics of the EU, the right of establishment, the freedom to provide services and the free movement of workers in the common market and continues with a series of selected topics.
