Students and lecturers from European Private Law will tell you what you can expect from this programme and discuss career opportunities once you have graduated.
Thanks to our ‘in context’ teaching method, our graduates are problem-driven, curious lawyers who can easily adapt to various kinds of legal practice and fulfil a range of functions. Our graduates work in international law firms throughout the EU and beyond, but also act as compliance officers and in-house lawyers for banks and other larger companies. Others have taken on national and European government functions, joined adjudication bodies or embarked on academic careers.
The Amsterdam Law School offers experiential education that is unique in the Netherlands. In experiential education, you learn by reflecting on who you are as a legal professional 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 legal professional in real or simulated cases. In clinics, for example, you will work on real cases. In simulations or law labs you will work on simulated cases.
You will be taught by top lecturers from the field and will 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 a maximum of 12 ECTS.
