The history of EU law in the JD curriculum is a classical tale of rise and fail. An avant garde, boutique offering in the 1970s, and a fairly popular course in the 1990s, today EU law in US law schools is slowly losing prominence. This Article begins by tracking this parabolic trajectory and argues that the discipline both rose and fell for contingent reasons that are mostly unrelated to its pedagogical and analytical significance. The Article then provides a critical appraisal of what EU law is uniquely poised to offer both in the classroom and as a subject for legal scholarship. An illustration based on French experiences of Europeanization supports the claim that EU law as an autonomous subject, can still make an original and nonfungible continbution to US legal academia.
