- What does the study programme look like?
What will my career prospects be like?
Because the EU Law Master’s track is so wide in scope, our graduates find work with a wide range of employers. These include law firms, (larger) businesses, the public sector and NGOs.
Our graduates learn to think like EU lawyers and are able to quickly master any area of EU law that comes their way. This gives them the ability and flexibility to adapt to diverse working environments and functions. It makes them attractive candidates for employers like international law firms, government ministries, consultancy firms, national and multinational corporations, competition and market regulatory authorities, regional authorities in the Netherlands and abroad and European Union institutions. In addition, a number of our graduates go on to do a PhD.
What is a track?
European Union Law is a side track in the master International and European Law which you can choose. Other tracks of the Master’s programme International and European Law are European Competition Law and Regulation, Public International Law and International Trade and Investment Law.
What is the Amsterdam Law Practice?
The Amsterdam Law School offers experiential education unique to the Netherlands. In the award winning educational programme the Amsterdam Law Practice, you learn by reflecting on who you are as a lawyer 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 lawyer in real or simulated cases. For example, in clinics you will work on real cases. In simulations or law labs, practice is imitated.
You are taught by top lecturers from the field and you 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 up to 12 ECTS. The Amsterdam Law Practice won a Dutch Higher Education Award for innovative education in 2022.
Is there an Honour’s programme for Master’s students?
Yes, if you are looking for more challenge and academic depth the Honours programme Academic Excellence track could be interesting for you. It is designed for excellent law students with evident research talent. The programme can be pursued in addition to all LLM programmes (Dutch and English). You will receive advanced training in research methods and academic skills as well as gather first-hand research experience during a research internship at one of our research projects.
