The New European law on family and successions
Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

This Project is conceived as an opportunity to respond to the increasing interest on a new subject matter – European law on family and successions–, and to contribute to the dissemination of one of the values and objectives settled down by the TEU itself, since providing the citizens with information on this subject matter is the key to guarantee them a full possession of their rights and to encourage their active participation in the European society.- Our general goal is the promotion of the academic reflection leading to a debate on the added value of the observance in the European Union how they regulate family law and successions and how they protect European citizens. It must be highlighted that this seminar will be open not only to the students following the General course on Private international law, but also to other University students (from the University of Valencia or from any other University), to researchers, to the University of Valencia’s program of adults education and to professional sectors (Lawyers board, pre-University teachers…), until reaching a maximum auditory of 100 students.- The short term profits of the Project are directly linked to the objectives aforementioned, which will be obtained through the combination of two methodologies: the organization of five conferences related to the European law on family and successions; and the use of a moot case concerning this issue by Spanish Courts and subsequently by the Court of Justice of the European Union. The University of Valencia’s virtual platform will be especially useful for this, since through its use we will provide the students with additional and complementary reading materials and documentation. Likewise, we will create debate forums on the main problems faced by the implementation in practice of the European family law.- The long term profits derive mainly from the work methodology to be implemented, since the appropriate combination of the set of methodological techniques
