Notes

As of 1 September 2022, the minors in Law, Crime and Punishment, and Politics and Governance have been merged into this Minor in Law. The focus of this minor is on the main areas of Dutch law, multidisciplinarity within the Faculty of Law, and the four themes of the University Schools.

Students who started one of the above-mentioned minors before 1 September 2022 can complete the relevant minor until 1 September 2023. All courses will be offered for at least another year. In that case, students will only need to register for the course via the course registration (separate minor registration is not required).

Minor requirements: compulsory 10 EC; elective 20 EC;

It is also possible to do a minor in Law of 15 EC (only in block 1). See below for the relevant courses.

a. If you wish to do the Dutch-taught minor, Introduction to Law for non-law students is a compulsory component; if you wish to do the minor in English, Administrative Law and Market Regulation for Non-Law students is a compulsory component.

b. The course Introduction to Law for non-law students in block 1 and the three elective courses in block 2 represent the Dutch law perspective.

c. Introduction to Law for non-law students and the three electives in Block 1 represent the multidisciplinary perspective (criminology, political science, and public administration).

d. The 10 EC courses in block 2 links up with the themes of the university schools.

  • Wubbo Ockels School (energy): Energy Law for non-law students
  • Jantina Tammes School ( digitalization): IT Law for non-law students
  • Rudolf Agricola School (sustainable society): Contemplating Democracy & the Rule of Law
  • Aletta Jacobs School (health): Health and Technology Law              

e. If a student wants to do a minor in English, he/she can choose 20 EC of English-taught courses in block 2, in addition to the course Administrative Law and Market Regulation for non-law students (10 EC) in block 1.

Notes

  • Minor requirements: compulsory 10 EC; elective 5 EC (only in block 1)
  • It is not possible to take a separate 15 EC minor in block 2. The courses offered in block 2 are exclusively for students who wish to complete their minor with courses from the minor Law with a total of 30 EC.

Due to the introduction of the new minor Law, the minors Crime and Penalty, Politics and Public Administration and the “old” minor Law will expire (you can still see these three minors in Ocasys). More information about the new minor Law and how to complete the minors Crime and Penalty and Politics and Public Administration you will find in this document .

Practical information

Faculty rules with regard to lectures, exams and enrolment periods may vary per faculty. All important information can be found on the Infonet for students with the heading Studying at a different faculty (only accessible for UG students) and also in the Law Knowledgebase: Information for non-law students. This page will provide you with information about the schedule, the enrolment for courses and exams, the rules of enrolment and enrolment periods, the academic calendar, ordering readers, etc.

Application

Registration for the minors goes via Progress

PLEASE NOTE: For students of the bachelor IRIO the following applies: Because the University Minor Law contains one elective course that overlaps with compulsory major components of the bachelor IRIO, IRIO students cannot choose the elective course Inleiding Politicologie/ Introduction to Political Science as part of this minor.

Education information

You will find detailed course descriptions in Ocasys. The information for the upcoming academic year will be available no later than the beginning of August.
