European Private Law is an unique Master’s programme on European civil and commercial law in context. It combines a set of core courses on topics at the heart of Europeanisation and internationalisation with a broad range of elective courses on subjects of high economic and societal relevance.
Today, many important private law questions no longer stop at national and disciplinary borders. Lawyers, working in legal practice, national and EU institutions, international corporations, NGOs and academia, are increasingly confronted with rules and doctrines of European and international origin.
This programme equips students with the insights, knowledge, and critical skills needed for dealing with private law issues in a rapidly changing world. It provides a thorough understanding of the European and international aspects of private law, and of the economic, social and political forces driving its Europeanisation and globalization.
There is a big demand in the labour market for top experts in private law on account of their unique familiarity with both EC private law and leading national systems of private law.
