During your study Master International and European Union Law
The (tax) lawyer and criminologist of the 21st century must have a T-shaped profile. It is expected from you to have in-depth expertise within a discipline (the vertical line of the T). Still, generic skills and multidisciplinarity are also essential (horizontal line of the T). Among other things, graduates must be able to communicate effectively and be result-oriented, a team player, driven, and(!) resistant to stress. The right diploma and work experience are (unfortunately) not always sufficient to get your dream job. With the events and workshops of MyFuture, you acquire the most requested skills and genuinely get to know yourself.

Erasmus Student Network
Erasmus Student Network (ESN) is a non-profit international student organization. Their mission is to represent international students, thus provide opportunities for cultural understanding and self-development under the principle of Students Helping Students.
Their main focus is placed on current exchange students. They offer help in the academic, social and practical integration process. This is mainly done through activities in the local sections, which include cultural and social events such as trips to various places within the country, film nights, language projects, international food festivals and last, but not least, parties. In addition to that, many sections have introduced mentor systems, which help the international students mainly in academic and practical integration.
Trade and Transport Law Association
The Trade & Transport Law Association (TTLA) aims to involve internationally oriented students interested in the field of trade and transport. By visiting a broad spectrum of firms and companies engaged in this field they introduce students and practitioners to each other. Additionally, they offer a broad variety of social events in order to get acquainted with others that share your passion for this field of law!
Moot court competitions
Students of this LL.M. programme have the opportunity to apply for international moot competitions. Joining this competition means that the student gets 5 EC, personal coaching, learns to work in a team and gets the opportunity to represent the Erasmus University abroad. Some of the most popular moot court competitions relevant for students from this LLM program include: Philip C. Jessup international law moot court, Frits Kalshoven international humanitarian law competition, and EU Law moot court.
Study trip abroad
One of the highly anticipated events of this LLM program is the yearly study trip abroad, which is organized by students themselves, with assistance from the department and the Law Faculty. It usually takes place during the Spring break season (April). In previous years, study trips have been organized to one or multiple of the following institutions: the European Union institutions, NATO, and World Bank’s EU office in Brussels, the World Trade Organization, United Nations organizations and the International Committee of the Red Cross in Geneva, the European Court of Human Rights in Strassbourg, the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg, and other top law firms.
During the trip, students get the unique chance to have a closer look at and discussing with representatives of those organizations. Every year, students find this experience highly rewarding, whether they are interested in the work the organizations do or simply want to have a behind-the-scenes glimpse of these grand EU and global institutions.
