LL.M. International and European Union Law

Current facets (Pre-Master)

When you decide to obtain your LL.M. International and European Union Law in Rotterdam, you will get the best of both worlds. Erasmus School of Law offers legal students the perfect combination of top-notch education and a vibrant international setting.

Come to Rotterdam to explore the processes and consequences of increased economic integration, which are ongoing both within the European Union and internationally. Economic integration affects our lives in multiple ways and is often translated into policy and law. Think of the role of law in the process of European integration and in bodies such as the World Trade Organisation (WTO) in regulating international trade. At Erasmus School of Law, you can learn more about these processes and get educated by an international teaching staff that is active in legal practice as well.

Another upside: you will become part of an international academic community in one of the most vibrant places in the world. Recently, renowned media outlets like CNN, Lonely Planet and The Guardian have named Rotterdam as one the world’s most exciting cities. This bustling sea port (the largest in the Western hemisphere) boasts a wide array of social events, cultural experiences and architectural wonders. Students from all around the world come to Rotterdam to follow our excellent LL.M. programmes while staying in a global, multicultural city.
