Staff affiliated with the Centre primarily research and teach EU and EEA law. Additionally, the Centre organizes courses and seminars on current topics of EU and EEA.
The core of the teaching activities at the Centre is the obligatory course on EEA law that forms part of the professional master’s degree in (Norwegian) law offered at the Faculty. To ensure that all lawyers educated at the University of Oslo Faculty of Law has some insight into the rules on free movement, the EEA Agreement’s role in Norwegian law, and the functioning of the EU/EEA/EFTA institutions is one of the Centre’s most important contributions to Norwegian society.
European Law is much more than what is covered in the EEA law module. An important task for the Centre in the coming time will be to better coordinate the various elective courses on European Law offered at the Faculty, with a view to the establishing a teaching community for European Law. Key electives in this connection are Public Procurement (JUS5940), EU Competition Law (JUS5310), and an advanced course covering key aspects of Union law (JUS5440).
