Why study Master International and European Union Law

LL.M. programme International and European Union Law @ Erasmus University Rotterdam

Make it Happen

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 often translates 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. Do you want to learn more about these processes and get educated by an international teaching staff team that is active in legal practice as well? If the answer is yes, then this is your master programme!

This LL.M. programme provides you with the skills to analyse the effects of economic integration and its consequences for the rule of law, democracy and human rights.
