Until recently, there was one Master International and European Law where you could choose between the two tracks European Union Law and International Law and Human Rights. From next year on, the Master International and European Law is distinguished in two master programs: European Union Law and International Law and Human Rights.
The European Union Law Master is for students that want to specialize in the constitutional and economic integrations of the European Union. The developments on the level of the European Union are creating exciting opportunities as well as challenges for its Member States. This leads to a growing demand for professionals with extensive knowledge of European Union Law in order to address the opportunities and challenges. The Master offers two tracks: EU Economic and Competition Law and the EU in a Global Legal Context. Moreover, the Master provides for small class sizes and interactive teaching methods in order to ensure a high level of participation during he program, as well as contact between students and their professors.
