International and European Law

Intended for

High school students with an interest for the English-taught LLB programme in International and European Law at the University of Groningen.

The Web Class

Do you want an international career in legal work environments, research, or practice? And you need more information about the LLB programme to decide whether this is the right programme for you? Then take part in this webclass! Get to know how European law affects your daily life; learn what treaty interpretation in public international law means; and get a basic insight in what having a human right is. Besides theory (reading literature) and small lectures on these topics you get to work on actual cases. When you complete this web class, you will have a general idea what the LLB programme is like and how it is taught at the University of Groningen. This web class is entirely in English, just like the programme itself.

Workload

The overall course load is approximately 10 hours. Every week you will deal with a case(s) about the topic that is discussed and based on that you make several assignments. Each case has links to background information and lectures that you can use to prepare your answers. You should analyze this information in order to make the assignments.

We would like to stress beforehand that we expect you to provide arguments for your answers in the assignment since we want to understand your line in thinking.

Studying International and European Law

The bachelor's programme in International and European Law takes three years. The first year teaches just about all basic law fields and is therefore broad in character, with concepts of private law, constitutional law, and criminal law discussed. In the second year, European Union law and public international law will be discussed to be a much larger extent, as well as research methods and training. The third year ends your bachelor programme by writing a thesis on a subject of your choice in law, which will be defended in front of supervisors and fellow students. This third year also requires students to study one semester at a university abroad. There is an interdisciplinary component in each semester of this programme.

Please note: The Internationaal en Europees Recht-specialization within the general Dutch Law (‘Rechtsgeleerdheid’) programme is based on national (Dutch) law and gives access to the bar and the judiciary (after also completing a Master's degree programme). The English-taught bachelor is based on conceptual law rather than national law and does therefore not have the opportunity of giving direct access to the bar or judiciary. The judiciary and bar are not possible with the English-taught LLB programme!
