Besides providing learners with a sound knowledge base of European laws and regulations relevant to establishing and managing a company within the European Union, the course also explores business considerations within a broader perspective by including inputs from leading law practitioners in the field. More specifically, the course discusses strategic and financial considerations within Company law, as well as Labour law issues such as restructuring enterprises, working conditions and handling crises situations. The course also examines other legal areas such as Tax law, Environmental law and Private International law, and how they tie in to doing business in Europe. At the end of this course, you will have a basic understanding of how to: · Understand the relevant regulations governing the internal European Union market · Establish and run a company within the European Union · Employ staff and recognize workers’ rights and obligations · Comply with tax regulations and environmental standards · Set up agreements and resolve cross-border disputes · Successfully analyse EU case law and draft case reports About the Series The Lund series in European Business Law ranges from considering the basic structures and principles of the European Union to focusing on specialized areas of European Union law.

Very interesting view on how domestic (member states) and overall EU law influences the different aspects of commerce. Furthermore, it gives some interesting insight into the daily struggles of policy & law managing a complex and evolving commercial environment that is the EU/EEA/Common Market.

I really enjoyed doing this course. It was a good introductory level course. I found the level of information (reading, videos) was not too much, and the presentations were thoughtful and informative. The quizzes were not too difficult. It was a good course for me to take because I am very busy with work.
