New English language Research Master

14 November 2023
Prof. Albertjan Tollenaar

For the 2024-2025 admissions round, the Faculty will offer the opportunity for interested applicants to pursue our two-year Research Master programme in English. The Research Master programme is administered by the Groningen Graduate School of Law (GGSL).

The Director of the GGSL, Albertjan Tollenaar, describes the programme:

The research master's programme complements LLM studies by integrating courses focused on research methodology and reflective analysis of legal research. It combines the essential "domain courses" of an LLM programme with specialized research-oriented courses. To ensure the small-scale character, most of the courses are only open to research master's students. Individual attention and active participation thus go hand in hand. The curriculum within the research master can be divided into methodological subjects, research subjects, skills, and domain subjects.

Who is the Research Master for? Tollenaar elaborates:

The programme is intended for motivated students with good study results and students from all undergraduate legal programmes are welcome to apply. The programme is specifically designed for passionate researchers who aspire to pursue an academic career or explore research opportunities outside academia. This programme aims to provide students with an enriching and transformative experience, enabling them to develop advanced research skills and gain a deeper understanding of legal research methodologies. Ultimately, the programme should be of interest to students who enjoy doing research, are curious, and want to discuss (the functionality of) law.

The Research Master, as well as the rest of the English taught LLM programmes at the Faculty, are open for applications for studies beginning in September 2024.

You can find more information about the programme at the GGCL webpages, and are welcome to join our upcoming Masters Week presentation for LLMs this November.

If you have any questions, please contact the GGCL.
