Jean Monnet Module “Towards a Common Private Law of Europe”
European national laws are but dialects of a common legal language. In the key field of private law, the European Commission has endorsed this approach taken by IE by granting IE University the European Module “Towards a Common Private Law of Europe” within the prestigious Jean Monnet Programme, under the direction of Professor Marco de Benito. In the Module, the common private law of Europe is addressed transversally through four different LLB courses: European Legal History, EU Law, Contracts, and Property. This transversal stance is supplemented by publications and seminars, open to both LLB and LLM students as well as to other legal professionals. The purpose of the Module is thus ultimately to foster the development of a more profound, sophisticated, cosmopolitan understanding of the law.
