The study programme

Global challenges such as fast technological changes, climate change and societal transformation disrupt existing market structures and business models. They challenge our current understanding of how markets work. As businesses adjust their practices to the changing market, the boundaries of the law and existing models of regulation are greatly influenced. Can private sustainability initiatives of firms escape competition law control? How should EU law regulate the sharing and platform economy, for example Airbnb or Uber? During this track you will learn to analyse and reflect on these issues.

At least one course in your curriculum is part of the Amsterdam Law Practice, our unique, award winning experiential education programme. A contemporary way of learning, in which you learn by doing and develop your professional identity by reflecting on who you are as a legal professional. The Amsterdam Law Practice received a Higher Education Award in 2022.
