Study programme

The study programme European Private Law combines a coherent set of core courses on topics at the heart of Europeanization and internationalization, with a broad range of elective courses on subjects of high economic and societal relevance.

Programme structure

The central aim of the track European Private Law is to educate a new generation of internationally oriented private lawyers with a broad, deep and critical understanding of the on-going Europeanisation and globalisation of private law and its dynamics. The programme consists of four compulsory courses: Private Law in a European and International Context (6 EC), European Contract Law (6 EC), European Private Law in Practice (3 EC) and the Research Training Seminar in European Private Law (3 EC).
