The Amsterdam Law Practice (ALP) is a unique experiential education program for all law Master's students. In the Amsterdam Law Practice, you learn by reflecting on who you are as a lawyer and how you want to contribute to society in the future. You apply your academic knowledge of law and your learned skills by stepping into the shoes of a lawyer in real or simulated cases.
As part of your LLM programme, you must take at least one ALP course of 6 ECTS and a maximum of 12 ECTS. You can take these ALP courses in the form of clinics, where you participate in real cases, or in a moot court or law Lab, where practice is simulated.
The Amsterdam Law Practice won a Dutch Higher Education Prize for innovative education in 2022.
The Amsterdam Law School and the Amsterdam Business School joined forces to offer a challenging curriculum. It's unique worldwide because it is offered by 2 faculties and provides truly interdisciplinary education at the intersection between law, economics and finance. The main goal is to educate students in both fields of law and finance.
The education days and holidays can be found in the academic calendar. The academic year at the UvA is divided into 2 semesters, each with 3 blocks of classes and exams. Most courses are offered once a year. Check the academic calender.
