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. This LL.M. provides students with the skills to analyse the effects of economic integration and its consequences for the rule of law, democracy and human rights. After they have graduated from this programme, they are able to provide profound legal advice in the field of international and European law and economic integration to both public and private entities. The content of this programme builds on prior courses (Introduction to International and European Law and European Law and Public International Law - taught in our Bachelor programme).
