Extending the study of European institutions, the course is dedicated to the EU legal order and judicial system. Various topics are analyzed, such as that of written sources – primary law, secondary legislation (regulations, directives) –, case law and general principles of the EU law (: direct effect, primacy, subsidiarity, proportionality). Concerning the judicial system, the course emphasizes the legal remedies (: preliminary ruling procedure, the “recours en carence”, action for annulment or for non-compliance…) that can be exercised in front of the EU Court of Justice.
