The lesson is dedicated to Legal English in Practice and other international issues and it is part of the e-learning course "e-Regulations in practice" undertaken under the Project "EU law training in English language: blended and integrated content and language training for European notaries and judges" co-financed by the Justice Programme of the European Union.

The course deals with cases and issues related to the application of the EU Regulations 650/2012, 1103/2016 and 1104/2016 respectively on successions, matrimonial property regimes and property consequences of registered partnerships.
Each lesson is delivered in English language, following the C.L.I.L. (Content and Language Integrated Learning) didactic methodology adopted in the Project, and is divided into several teaching units that are available on the present MOOC platform.
Access to the final test is possible after having accessed 80% of the entire course, meaning 80% of each lesson.
The course aims at contributing to the effective and coherent application of EU civil law by covering training needs gaps, both scientific and linguistic.
The expected results are to reach a greater awareness of the content of the above EU Regulations in English as to replicate the training methodology in other EU countries and contribute to the Regulations uniform application in the Member States
