Panel Discussion 


In 2016, the world of data protection was shaken by the adoption of the GDPR, the European General Data Protection Regulation. Although many aspects of this regulation already existed in the European Directive which it replaced, the GDPR was nevertheless seen as ground-braking for a number of reasons. Among those, the fact that it created a unified Data protection Law applicable to 450 million people; the fact that the sanctions for violating EU data protection law were considerably upscaled ; and the fact that, if some conditions apply, this regulation is to be respected by data controllers located outside of Europe.


This last feature makes it extremely important for non-Europeans to understand when they are supposed to respect the GDPR and, consequently, its basic features and principles. This module will introduce participants to those aspects as well as current issues concerning data flows from the European Union to the rest of the world.


[Video on Demand] The Civil Law System and the Law of Obligations

Although the Law of the European Union has its own autonomous logic, it applies in countries that share an important common trait: they all belong to what has come to be known as the “Civil Law system”. Understanding the underpinnings of the Civil Law system is useful to understand how European lawyers think and talk about the law: although they do not speak the same spoken language, they do share, to a varying degree, a common law language that they all inherited from the Roman civilisation and that is almost completely foreign to the language of the Common Law.


This module will first look at the major differences between the two legal systems from a historical perspective. The second part will introduce what is called in the Civil Law world the “Law of Obligations”, with a special reference to the basics of Contract Law within the context of the Civil Law system.


[Video on Demand] The EU Bloc, EU Law Decision-Making Structures and Policy Law-Making Processes

The European Union is one of the most powerful organisations in the world. Its roots can be found in the historical and economic heritage of its Member States, which had made it possible to build an economic and political union that had developed its own institutional, legal and economic system without becoming a Federal State. The purpose of the module is to better understand what the EU is. It focuses on the historical developments that led to the European Coal and Steel Community in 1952 and the events that led to the building of an integrated Union in 2007. It also provides details on the institutions of the EU, their role, composition and functions, for a better grasp of the workings of the EU in general. The module also covers the developments on the legal system of the EU, introducing the various legal instruments. Finally, it provides an overview of the functioning of the internal market as an area of economic freedom, as well as the basis for the adoption of sectoral rules governing all economic areas which are of interest to the EU.


This module is for legal practitioners wanting in-depth knowledge of the rules of EU law relevant to their field of practice, by providing them with the keys to understanding the functioning of the EU.
