Master in Laws

Master in Laws (LL.M.)

Master the craft of the law. Deepen your knowledge of it, and learn its many facets. Pursue a general course of study or take a specialisation, and get ready for a successful career in one of many fields.

Work in small groups on all aspects of the law. Take advantage of the intensive support offered by the instructors to develop an in-depth understanding based on the latest developments.

Forge links with the social sciences and economics, so you can get a solid understanding of the contexts in which the law operates—crucial to building up a successful practice once you graduate.

Hone your research and drafting skills, which you will of course need once you get started as a lawyer, judge, prosecutor, legal advisor, or policymaker.

The Master in Laws is also offered in Dutch.
