Students of the European Union Law LLM programme are involved participants in interactive courses and extracurricular activities, in other words ‘law in action’. We call this Experiential Education programme the Amsterdam Law Practice.
Moot courts, moot lawmaking exercises, individual research projects and supervised work at the Amsterdam International Law Clinic provide our students with the chance to look beyond the black letter of EU Law and experience the ways in which it is applied and interpreted as a ‘living instrument’.
With its large number of international law firms, global business headquarters, and proximity to several important EU institutions, Amsterdam is an ideal city for students of European Union Law to experience the value of the Amsterdam Law Practice.
Our Experiential Education method inspires and motivates students to do research and increase their knowledge. Students learn by doing, and connect with society at large by working with fellow students towards the solution of social problems. Moreover, it offers them the opportunity to establish contacts in the professional field, a valuable prelude to a successful legal career.
For European Union Law, the following courses are part of the Amsterdam Law Practice programme for Experiential Education:
