The European Union is in constant development, produces new legal problems and solutions almost daily. This Master's track includes the most recent academic insights and legal developments promptly in its courses, without losing sight of the broader legal perspectives.

The European Union Law track will provide you with a solid foundation in EU law. In addition, the programme offers a large number of optional courses given by experts, that you can use to construct a personalised specialisation, focusing e.g. on European competition law, European environmental law, European migration law, European criminal law, Law of the internal market, European constitutional law, European administrative law, or law of the economic and monetary union.
