About us Faculty of Law Organization Departments Transboundary Legal Studies Areas of Expertise International Law


We are committed to providing a challenging and innovative teaching environment and we are proud to dedicate to teaching every bit as much attention as to our research. Although research always informs teaching, high quality teaching is an aim in itself we strive to achieve. Combining theory and practice is an explicit goal in our teaching. Active engagement by students is a prerequisite for this. In our teaching in general, and in the practical assignments and working methods more specifically, we select topics that are an illustration of the role of international law in creating sustainable societies. Knowledge, understanding and skills are the three pillars of our teaching.

Our professors’ and lecturers’ expertise covers most branches of public international law and we are thus capable of supervising students in their collective and individual research assignments in a wide variety of fields. Most of our academic staff is involved in the supervision of bachelor’s, master’s and PhD theses.

We teach the following courses at the bachelor’s and master’s level at the Faculty of Law as well as the Faculty of Arts. Almost all of these are taught in English:

Bachelor in International and European Law

Bachelor in Dutch Law

Bachelor in Dutch Law (specialisation International and European Law)

Bachelor Honours programme
