About us Faculty of Law International programmes LLM programmes 2024-2025 European Law in a Global Context

Career prospects

The European Law in a Global Context programme is designed to equip its graduates with specialist knowledge and skills for a career with European institutions and national authorities, and with policy-influencing bodies, major law firms, or as in-house lawyers. Given the continuing and growing importance of European law, both at European level and in the national legal orders of the Member States, and the importance of the EU as a trading partner and international actor, the demand for specialised European lawyers continues to grow.

Below you will see a distribution of the different arenas where past students are currently working (please note this programme was previously known as European Economic Law). And here you can read about the career paths of our Faculty international graduates.

Further, all students have access to the university Careers Services Law which can help them in finding and preparing for internships and employment.

To mention, students that complete the Dutch-taught track  Internationaal en Europees Recht  in the bachelor  Rechtsgeleerdheid  taught at the University of Groningen should be able to qualify for 'civiel effect' in the Netherlands when completing this LLM programme*. More information about the specific requirements for access to the Dutch bar can be found at the site of the  Dutch Bar Association  (the 'Nederlandse Orde van Advocaten').

If you'd like to know more about the European Law in a Global Context LLM programme, you are welcome to join one of our Masters Week presentations for the programme. You can also watch a recording of our most recent (online) masters week presentation here.

*Qualification for 'civiel effect' does not apply to graduates of the Technology Law and Innovation LLM, which is a programme track under the accreditation of CROHO European Law in a Global Context (60688).
