Course Content (Syllabus)
The course covers issues of international procedural law relevant to the legal protection in disputes of private law with foreign elements or transnational character. It includes issues on the trial and interim measures, the stage of enforcement of the judgement, in combination with the alternative ways of resolving private disputes with elements of international or cross-border character. Indicatively, it examines issues of international jurisdiction of national and foreign courts, service of process between persons residing in different countries, recognition and enforcement of judgments, arbitral awards and other enforceable titles. The investigation is carried out on the basis of international conventions that are in force in Greece and on the basis of current European law, respectively, in comparison to the provisions of the international procedural law of the Civil Procedure Code. The greek case-law and the judgements of CJEU are mainly taken into consideration. The purpose of the research is to address the interpretive issues that arise in this field and highlight the "international procedural theory or thought", which gradually affects the national legal framework and law practice, while enhancing the scientific research and production in new directions and fields.
