What is the Amsterdam Law Practice?
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.
What makes this Master’s unique?
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.
