During the week of 15-20 January, the Faculty of Law hosted the PEPP - Programme in European Private Law for Postgraduates, which was attended by doctoral students from partner institutions (in addition to the PF UM, the universities of Münster, Cambridge, Leuven, Valencia, Genoa, Zagreb, Silesia, Katowice, Hamburg (Bucerius) and the Max Planck Institute for Comparative and Private Law in Hamburg).
The PEPP is organised under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Bettina Heiderhoff from the University of Münster, and coordinated at our Faculty by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Petra Weingerl. Our Faculty was represented by doctoral students Živa Šuta and Natalija Kunstek. Other doctoral and Erasmus students were also invited to attend the lectures.
The lecturers at the PEPP programme were (in chronological order): Prof. Dr. Verica Trstenjak, Assist. Prof. Dr. Katja Drnovšek, Prof. Dr. Matjaž Tratnik, Prof. Dr. Martina Repas, Prof. Dr. Janja Hojnik, Prof. Dr. Vesna Rijavec, Prof. Dr. Emilia Mišćenić (University of Rijeka), Assoc. Prof. Dr. Petra Weingerl, Prof. Dr. Bettina Heiderhoff, Prof. Dr. Damjan Možina (University of Ljubljana) and Prof. Dr. Tjaša Ivanc. We also visited the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Slovenia, where we were warmly welcomed and in a conversation with the President, Dr. Matej Accetto, the students learned a lot of useful information about the application of EU law at the Constitutional Court and about its cooperation with the CJEU. We also visited the EU Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER).
The event was co-funded by the ARIS project Z5-3220, the Jean Monnet module Fundamental Rights in EU Business Law and Policy (FURBUS) and the NOO Pilot Project "Green and Digital Legal Transformation".
