The programme is a high-level, demanding postgraduate programme in the field of European Union and international law.

The impact of EU legislation

In this Advanced Studies programme, you will study the impact of the European Union, the most influential international organisation in Europe for the purposes of business law, on government and enterprise in a global economy. You will moreover gain insight into its effect on other international organisations, in particular the World Trade Organisation. We will focus on the areas where the relevance of the EU for lawyers active in business or government is strongest.

Our programme is unique in its clearly defined focus on the interaction of international, European and national law. In addition, we ensure that you develop both academic and professional competences. Specific attention is paid, therefore, to professional applications, particularly through assignments and teaching methods.
