The aim of this course is to introduce students to the International and European Union social law and policy. The European Union emerges in the 21st century as a unique entity in the world constitutional order encompassing the majority of European States. The basic area of coverage of this course is current issues of European Union social law and policy. That, in practice will also cover a wide area of EU substantive law, through which the socio-economic life of the Union is regulated. Relevant EU Treaties will be analyzed, as well as the European Union Charter of Fundamental Rights, which serves as a new “Bill of Rights” for European citizens. Furthermore, students will be acquainted with major EU social policy case-law and secondary legislation in the fields of employment rights and work organisation, non-discrimination and gender equality law, fundamental rights and freedoms, social dialogue and employee participation. By the end of this course, students should be able to comprehend some of the major issues of the European social integration process and to distinguish the specific features of the European social model in an international and comparative law perspective.

In the recent years, comparative legal studies have increasingly gained great practical and theoretical importance. All developments relating to globalization and European integration, such as the increasing demand for legal information require thorough knowledge of foreign law, To this end, we shall combine the classical teaching of comparative law, which refers to the study of the great legal systems and cultures of the world with the theoretical foundations of this discipline. Therefore, after the presentation of the notion, the functions and the methodological principles of comparative law, we shall examine the classification and the basic features of the the civil law, common law and East-Asian legal systems,

This course examines the connecting bridges between Legal and Economic Science: rational, purposive action, their common goal (the regulation of social relationships), their normative aspect, etc. It then analyzes: (a) the relationship between legal rules and policies aiming at economic efficiency, and (b) The connection of fundamental concepts of economics with legal and political rules, by means of case studies (e.g. regarding legislation and incentives, the dysfunctions arising from the action of organized pressure groups and the increasing bureaucracy, economic inequalities within the contemporary welfare state, social policies as a result of the trade-off between social equality and economic efficiency, and so on). In the last half of the course, economic analysis is applied to particular branches of Law: property law (with an emphasis on the Coase Theorem), contract law, torts, environmental law, criminal law (exami! ned primarily through the lens of Gary Becker’s theory of the rational criminal), and finally, family law. It should be noted that prior knowledge of economics is not required in order to attend this course.
