I am interested in taking online course in European Law / European Studies and would appreciate any direct links to Universities' programms or resources containing information about various courses and programms.
Something like the links given below, which are still not exactly what I am looking for as they are not about online education and mostly intended for EU citizens:
- http://www.europa.eu.int/youth/studying/index_eu_en.html
- http://europa.eu.int/eures/main.jsp?acro=learning&lang=en&catId=55&parentId=0

I am interested in higher (or post graduate) education and due to some circumstances only in online courses.

Thanks in advance.

pity it's European Dec 8, 2004

I know a wonderful fully online Law School in the US which admits people from overseas - www.concordlawschool.com, but maybe that could help, too...

If I come across something on European Law, I'll post it, too.

Why not try the Open University - UK Dec 9, 2004

The thing about European Law is that, when all is said and done, national legal systems have precedent. European Law is generally part of a Law degree syllabus but is not the main focus because law diplomas and degrees are designed to fulfil the needs of intending legals and paralegals in the country where they wish to practise.

The Open University is the largest distance-learning University in Europe offering a range of diplomas and law degrees that are recognised by the College of Law (England and Wales).

You can ask for a course propectus on-line at www.open.ac.uk/courses or send an e-mail to: general-enquires@open.ac.uk . They are incredibly efficient and helpful.

I understand your problem as I have been searching for a Master-type course in legal translation. It seems we are the pioneers!

Good luck

Yes, I have already found one course with Open University - http://www3.open.ac.uk/courses/bin/p12.dll?Q01B10

Still it's mostly about European culture/social issues/history, etc., than about law... So I'm continue looking and would appreciate any further comments and links.

Earlier in the year I enrolled on Open University course 'W200 - Understanding the law'. My course materials arrived yesterday, and although I obviously haven't had the time to read through them indepth, I think I can safely say that this course is definitely about the law, and not European culture/history etc as you suspected. It appears that the first half of the course is based on the law of England and Wales, and the second half focuses primarily on EC law and legislation. However, at nearly £1,600 sterling, this course is very expensive. I would also suspect that you would have to pay more if you are based outside of the UK (due to loss of government subsidy).

It is also worth noting that the University works in partnership with The College of Law, which apparently is Europe's largest institution of legal professional training. As far as I was able to discover (and believe me, I spent a lot of time looking for and researching courses) the distance learning courses offered by the OU are probably some of the best amongst those on offer.

However, this too can work out expensive if you want to gain recognised qualifications.
