If managing cross-border deals is a challenge in itself, the task is even more so when the deal involves a different legal system and a host of entirely different rules. Such is the case when dealing with European Union jurisdictions: all belong to the civil law system and are governed, on some level, by European law.
This special programme jointly organised by the Singapore Academy of Law (SAL) and Université Paris-Panthéon-Assas, Singapore Campus (ASSAS) seeks to answer these questions, by giving participants an understanding of the fundamentals of a civil law system, of the European institutional framework as well as of the main rules applicable in substantive fields covered by European law, namely Data Protection, Green Financing, Competition Law and Digital Intellectual Property.

In 2016, the world of data protection was shaken by the adoption of the European General Data Protection Regulation. Although many aspects of this regulation already existed in the European Directive which it replaced, the GDPR was nevertheless seen as ground-braking for a number of reasons. Among these, the fact that it created a unified Data protection Law applicable to 450 million people; that the sanctions for violating EU data protection law were considerably upscaled; and that, if some conditions apply, this regulation is to be respected by data controllers located outside of Europe.
This last feature makes it extremely important for non-Europeans to understand when they are supposed to respect the GDPR and, consequently, its basic features and principles. This module will introduce participants to these aspects as well as current issues concerning data flows from the EU to the rest of the world.
