In order to understand European and international business law, a broad basic knowledge of litigation is needed. Luxembourg is the seat of both the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) and of the EFTA Court. This is where crucial decisions for the functioning of the single European market are taken. Classes are based on real-world case studies, which will be crafted by our faculty. Many laws are brought about by lobbying initiatives and find application at a later time before a court of law. Which is why the influence of public affairs - through lobbying and advocacy - in business life and across industries can not be ignored and needs to be understood at its real value.
