Hi again..

Late night reflections over today’s lecture:

Today’s subject was more difficult and therefore more difficult to make as fun as the first lecture 🙁 .
The differences between Common Law System and Civil Law System is not as big today as it used to be. Common Law countries have an increasing quantity statutory law and Civil Law countries, especially in EU member countries, an increasing quantity of case law through EU Law.
It is very important that you can identify the different Courts that vi have in Europe, see slide no 93 and you must learn what subject matters ”belongs” to what Court.
It is also important that you learn how to find the different cases. Pick some cases from the book and make sure that you can find them in the database www.curia.org
Study the case C-461/10 and make sure that you understand the procedure from publication of the request for preliminary ruling in the Official Journal of the European Union through Opinion of Advocate General, Judgement of the Court and final publication of the Judgement in the Official Journal of the European Union. It is also important that you understand the relation between the national courts and ECJ when it comes to ”requests for preliminary ruling”.

One more thing before i close down the computer:
I am a little bit disturbed from ”the silent” small talk that is going on, some times, during the lectures. And I can also see that some of you are very disturbed about this. The subject that we are talking about is so difficult and it requires 100% attention from you and from us teachers. I know that it is tough with 4 hours lectures but please……

Be happy 🙂
Best regards,


I am half dead, hope you are alive and happy 😉
I also hope I did not scare you to much today. It was a very intensive lecture with a lot of new information for you. What you need to do now is to print out the lecture 1 slides. Read them and try to explain to yourself what they mean. If you can not remember all I said 🙁 try to ”google” on the words and you will probably find some texts that will give you some idea what I meant. We do not have any textbook that covers the first lecture.

On today’s slide no 151 an example of ”Responsible Corporate Officers doctrine” could be an individual who is responsible for an environmental crime committed by a corporation if the person is in charge for the corporation.

Case C-6/64 Flaminio Costa v E.N.E.L. is now on the homepage. Print out the case and bring it to the next lecture.
Print also out case C-461/10 from homepage and bring it to next lecture.
Buy or print out Law Text Compendium and bring to next lecture.

If you are not too tired and want to read something you can start with chapter 2 page 47-77 in the book The Foundations of European Union Law. I will talk about that chapter tomorrow on lecture 2.

Feel free to write something about today’s lecture. What was good? What was bad?

Take care 😉
See you tomorrow
Best regards
