Justin Nogarede liked the University of Amsterdam because it's so close to the heat. ‘You're close to the big law firms at the Zuidas, you're close to the Hague, where policy is made. I particularly liked the very practical aspects that really prepared me well for the professional life after studies.’ Justin currently works at the European Commission.
Jiao chose to study at the Amsterdam Law School to better understand the European market structure: ‘Because the different sectors of the EU market are useful to China, I decided to move to Europe and gain a better understanding of EU competition law.’
Elise finds it interesting to see how different fields: law, economics and politics all come together in European Competition Law & Regulation. 'Attention is given to the insights in these different fields, which already shows from the classes we get during the Master’s and also later on, when lawyers and the European institutions work together with economics to also address these aspects during case analysis.'
Yannis always wanted to study law because of its diversity and its direct impact on our daily lives. This track offers a highly customizable programme. Due to the few mandatory courses, you can choose freely in which direction you want to go. The university also offers a great Experiential Education programme that caters for students that want to have a practical side next to their theoretical studies.'
