For admission to the course, required apart from the general entry requirements is that the specific entry requirements concerning English, social studies and the Swedish language that apply for admission to the business law programmes are satisfied, and that the following courses/course parts (or the equivalent) are completed: Commercial and Business Law, Public and EEC/EU Law, Contract, Tort and Insurance Law, Intellectual Property Rights and Competition Law and additional courses comprising at least 12 HE credits in commercial and business law.

Intended learning outcomes

On completion of the course, the student should be able to

Course content

The course comprises an overview of the main features and practices of the LOU. This includes an overview of the EEC directives on which LOU is essentially based and a definition of the fields of application of the LOU, both considering the concerned bodies and public authorities ("contracting entity"), and the one that should be procured ("substantive field of application"). Further analysed are the general principles of business conduct, impartiality and transparency at the bid opening that apply for procurement, as well as the rules for procurement over and under the thresholds and the judicial demands that may be placed on the tender documents. Studied in the final part of the course are the conditions for county administrative courts to intervene during the procurement procedure when prompted by bidders, as well as the rules concerning damages in cases of violation of the LOU in connection with completion of a procurement.

Teaching and working methods

The teaching takes the form of lectures, seminars and practical exercises. The seminars are compulsory. Compulsory written assignments may also occur. The students should also study independently.

Examination

The course is examined through compulsory seminars, possible written assignments, and through written and independent examination.
