This programme follows a coherent set of strongly interrelated courses. They prepare you for legal service in European and international private practice or corporate entities, as well as in any EU institution and in the public administration of Member States dealing with economic regulation.
This track allows students to specialize in competition law as well as to study the broader regulatory framework applicable to European economic activities in fast-moving and progressively digitalised markets. You can combine the study of broader legal and theoretical perspectives on EU competition law and market regulation with its practical application. The programme offers students also a wide range of extra-curriculum activities.
The quality of the programme is enriched by UvA’s close academic partnership with the Amsterdam Centre for Law & Economics (ACLE) and the Amsterdam Centre for European Law and Governance (ACELG).
In the courses of our unique experiential learning programme, you apply your academic knowledge of the law and the skills you have learned by putting yourself in the shoes of a legal professional, in practice or in simulated situations. By reflecting on who you are as a lawyer, you work on your professional identity. The courses therefore build a bridge to society and the future professional field.
The following compulsory or restricted-choice elective courses are part of the Amsterdam Law Practice:
The 6 EC for Legal English do not count for the 60 mandatory EC's of this master, but are extracurricular.
