FAQ

  • What will my career prospects be like?

    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.

  • What is Amsterdam Law Practice?

    The Amsterdam Law School offers an Experiential Education programme unique in the Netherlands. In its simplest terms, experiential education aims to let you learn by reflecting on a personal learning experience, or, in other words, to learn by doing. Each Master’s programme offers courses from what is collectively known as the Amsterdam Law Practice (ALP) in which you are asked to apply your knowledge of the law to questions from actual practice. These courses place you in a particular professional role and make experiences a part of the learning process. This takes shape, for example, in the form of moot courts, simulations, clinics, and internships. In all cases, you take on the role of a lawyer and learn to reflect on who you are as a lawyer, and how you want to contribute to the society in the future, through the way you carry out your work. Within each master programme it is possible to follow a minimum of 6 ects of experiential education and a maximum of 12 ects. Amsterdam Law Clinics or Internship are some examples of the Amsterdam Law Practice.
