Master in European Business Law (LL.M.)

 

Description

The LL.M. in European Business Law provides rigorous academic and professional training in legal practice related to current developments in business law, including such areas as intellectual property, data protection, e-commerce, jurisdiction and dispute resolution, in regimes and contractual developments related to the European and global economy.

The first semester is devoted to deepening the understanding of European integration and the interaction between EU law and national legal systems, followed by classes on the areas of business law that have been deeply “europeanised” (competition and insurance law, intellectual property and IT law, procurement, contract and consumer law). The second semester is dedicated to legal areas more focused on business law as such (company and tax law, private international law and arbitration).

Students are trained to evaluate legal issues in a unique way, encouraging analysis that goes beyond national jurisdictions in order to draw upon European legal sources, and to propose more innovative solutions.

The courses are taught by a remarkably strong group of experts in the field, both academics and practitioners – among whom members of the Court of Justice and the European Human Rights Court – and prepare you for leadership roles in the increasingly globalised marketplace.

Our ground-breaking law clinic will allow you to meet and assist actual clients while working alongside a psychologist and experienced practitioners on cases. Together with our internship programme, it will equip you to face real-world challenges after law school. Join us in this unique experience of learning law in a more active, engaged, and efficient manner.”
