The Master’s specialisation in European Law is an English-taught programme designed primarily for foreign and Dutch law students who wish to specialise during the last phase of their studies in the field of European Law. The specialisation focuses on various areas of European Law – such as Human Rights, the internal market and the Union’s external relations – both from a substantive and institutional law perspective. Thus, it aims to equip the students with the necessary skills and knowledge for a future career as a European Law expert.
Very few areas of national law and policy within Europe remain untouched by the influence of European law. Moreover, Europe is becoming an increasingly important actor on the international stage. The master’s specialisation in European law is designed for students who wish to specialise in this exciting and rapidly developing field. The programme is taught in English and attracts students form around the world.
The content of the master’s programme is connected with that of the Law Faculty’s research programme: Securing the Rule of Law in a World of Multi-level Jurisdiction. Briefly stated, the research programme addresses the question as to how the rule of law (i.e. democracy, protection of human rights, adequate legal remedies) can be maintained when the law is formed at several levels.
“Society needs lawyers who know how Brussels, Luxembourg and Strasbourg work. It is our aim to train lawyers who can find their way in the European legal order.”
“It is trite to say that ‘Europe’ has a huge impact on our daily lives. From trade to the environment, from the financial markets to judicial co-operation: the EU has assumed a central role in 21st century policy making. Meanwhile the European Court of Human Rights protects the rule of law in 47 European States.”
