The CES/IE enjoys the backing of the European Commission (Decision 2009-3241/001-001).The Center organizes academic conferences and seminars coupled with open debate aimed at fostering discussions that are both diverse and informed. The Center serves as a platform for advanced research on European integration. The Center’s fellows are international experts in their areas of specialization. The Center regularly publishes multidisciplinary studies and working papers sponsored by the Jean Monnet-IE Chair.

The European Module Jean Monnet "Towards a Common Private Law of Europe"

The European Commission has expressly endorsed this innovative approach by granting IE University this European Module within the prestigious Jean Monnet Program, 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, and incorporate the comparative standpoint naturally into their future legal practice.
