Summary

This programme offers a genuinely inter-disciplinary approach to European studies for law students in order to analyse how our understanding of the nature of the European Union is shaped by our particular disciplinary perspectives. Students will be challenged to think outside the box of their discipline within the core modules and to develop their discursive skills in relation to their twin discipline. Members of staff in the Sutherland School of Law have engaged in major research in this area spanning the full range of European Law from the institutional structure of the EU to critiques of existing area of EU law such as competition law and environmental law.

To understand and think critically about the intersections between law, politics and international relations that come to the fore in the study of EU law; To apply their knowledge and understanding of EU law, political theory and international relations to real and hypothetical factual situations; To conduct independent research and write coherent, well-structured papers.

This programme will enable you to qualify in the legal profession while specialising in European law and public affairs. It is also the ideal platform from which to pursue a career in the European public service,e.g. European Commission and European Courts of Justice.

Several UCD careers events are held throughout the year, including dedicated law careers fairs which are attended by top employers. For specific careers advice, the UCD Sutherland School of Law has a dedicated careers advisor on its academic faculty.
