What is the Amsterdam Law Practice?
The Amsterdam Law School offers experiential education that is unique in the Netherlands. In experiential education, you learn by reflecting on who you are as a legal professional and how you want to contribute to society in the future. You apply your academic knowledge of the law and your learned skills by putting yourself in the shoes of a legal professional in real or simulated cases. In clinics, for example, you will work on real cases. In simulations or law labs you will work on simulated cases.
You will be taught by top lecturers from the field and will learn a lot from each other in a small group of motivated students. Within each Master's programme it is possible to take at least 6 ECTS of experiential learning and a maximum of 12 ECTS.
