European Competition Law and Regulation (International and European Law)

‘The law can directly change people’s lives’

Jiao chose to study at the Amsterdam Law School to better understand the European market structure. ‘These experiences are useful for China, since China has been aiming at restructuring and liberalizing a number of sectors.’

‘I decided to study at the Amsterdam Law School after graduating from Nankai university in China. During  my time at Nankai, competition law sparked my interest. 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.’

Jiao - Master European Competition Law and Regulation

Laws can change everything

‘I chose law because it can directly change people’s lives. Moreover I realized society would not be able to function properly without a comprehensive system of rules.’

‘The LLM European Competition Law and Regulation shows how the competition rules contribute to the development of the internal market and make the EU market a fair play ground. These experiences are useful for China, because it has been aiming at restructuring and liberalizing a number of sectors.’

‘The first two months were tough for me, since I was following two courses at the same time, without having any background knowledge of EU law before I came to Amsterdam. So I chose to attend a course called “Introduction to EU Law”, which helped me understand the basics. I also attended a lot of seminars, which was very helpful for my case analysis.’

Discovering Dutch culture and history

‘I usually hang out with my friends and visit different parts of the Netherlands. We applied for a museum card, so we can visit multiple museums for a fair price. Through these museums, I learned a lot about the culture and history of the Netherlands.’
