International and European Law: European Union Law (LLM track)

The Master's programme in EU Law at the University of Amsterdam is known as one of the best in the world. Yearly it attracts around fifty students from some thirty different countries. In this international environment, students are offered a broad range of courses dealing with many aspects of EU law and policy.

The European Union is constantly developing, creating new legal challenges and solutions almost daily. This Master's track focuses on these issues, including the most recent academic insights and legal developments, without losing sight of the broader legal perspectives.

Studying European Union Law at the University of Amsterdam

The European Union (EU) Law track will provide you with a solid foundation in EU law. In addition, the programme offers a large number of elective courses taught by leading experts and enables you to construct a personalised specialisation, e.g. European Competition Law, European Environmental Law, European Migration Law, European Criminal Law, Law of the Internal Market, European Constitutional Law, European Administrative Law, or Law of the Economic and Monetary Union.


All Master's students start in September and throughout the year, a community of students (‘year group’) is formed, through strong inter-personal connections and regular social events. This will allow you to rely on the support of your peers in addition to the support of the academic staff.
