Evaluation criteria

Two voluntary exercises are organized in conjunction with the lectures. The exercises focus on the application of EU law. The exercises take the form of complicated problem questions that the students are expected to answer in one day. They are graded pass/fail. A pass will provide a student with 4 extra points, so a student may carry the maximum of 8 points to the examination. Extra points are valid only for the exams on this academic year's exam round.

The written examination will contain three questions: two essay questions (max 10 points per question) and one problem question (max 20 points).
