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.
