Calendar of EIEL core teaching activities announced

The EIEL staff is happy to announce that the calendar of EIEL core teaching activities for the second semester of the current academic year has now been finalised.

The upcoming start of the activities represents the second major implementation milestone of the EIEL Jean Monnet Module, after the launch of the 2020/2021 EIEL Webinar Series which saw the participation of Prof Marjan Peeters and Dr Leonie Reins as guest speakers.

On 1 March, the general course of European Union law taught by Prof Riccardo Pavoni at the Department of Law of the University of Siena will start. Following several weeks of preliminary lectures about general themes of EU law, on 23 and 26 April Prof Elisa Morgera will give two lectures covering essential aspects of international environmental law. They will be followed by an in-depth analysis of EU environmental law within a series of lectures given by Prof Riccardo Pavoni and Mr Dario Piselli until 14 May. These lectures will explore an extensive range of important thematic and cross-cutting issues, including the historical evolution, legal basis and key principles of EU environmental law; the relationship of EU environmental law and the European internal market; and the most recent normative developments in policy areas such as climate change and biodiversity.

Within the same time frame, the EIEL Module will also host its first keynote lecture, by Dr Maria Cristina Carta (University of Sassari). This keynote lecture will illustrate and discuss the legal aspects of the European Green Deal launched by the European Commission in December 2019.
