Rules to progress from a pre-LLM to an LLM
In principle, admission to the pre-LLM programme is valid for only one year and candidates can only be admitted once.
55/60 ECTS after one year
After one year, if students have passed all the courses of the pre-Master, they will be issued a “proof of admission” granting them admission to the relevant Master of Laws programme.
45/50 ECTS after one year
After one year, if students have completed at least 45 (in case of 55 ECTS pre-LLMs) or at least 50 ECTS (in case of 60 ECTS pre-LLMs) - including the compulsory courses Law and Legal Skills (including IT for Lawyers) and the research seminar(s) - they cannot start the LLM programme, but are allowed to extend their registration in the pre-LLM for a maximum of one year. During that year they then have to complete the remaining ECTSs of the pre-LLM curriculum, after which they are admitted to the relevant LLM programme.
Less than 45/50 ECTS
After one year, if students have not completed at least 45 (in case of 55 ECTS pre-LLMs) or at least 50 ECTS (in case of 60 ECTS pre-LLMs) of the pre-LLM curriculum, they are considered to have failed the pre-LLM programme. This means that they cannot proceed to the LLM programme and also cannot continue in the pre-LLM. If they wish, they can apply for entry into the Faculty’s English-taught LLB programme International and European Law. They can request exemptions for part of the LLB curriculum on the basis of prior education, including courses passed during the pre-LLM year.
30 ECTS pre-LLM programmes
The same rules apply for the 30 ECTS pre-LLM programmes. The threshold is set at 20 ECTS in this case.
