International and European Law

All states have laws and their own legal system, and in most countries you can only study national law at the university level. Our LLB programme in International and European Law is specifically designed for students who wish to pursue a professional career in an international legal environment; it gives students an academic training in law without merely taking a national legal system as a starting point by offering students a general understanding of what 'law' is and how it functions. The focus is therefore mainly on teaching public international law and European Union law. The core aim is to give students an understanding of the content and functioning of international and European law in the context of its development, and also of its application in an international, public, private economic, or policy-making, environment. As of the 2020-2021 academic year, LLB students can choose to pursue a specialized track in Technology Law starting in the second year of studies.
