Law Degrees in LLM Employment Law in Europe 2017. Are you ready to study the legal aspects of doing business in an international setting?
This programme focuses on developments and practical problems from a comparative law perspective and pays attention to the differences in approach and outcome between civil and common law jurisdictions. Because of the unique combination of two jurisdictions, both international corporate law and commercial law, the master Commercial & Company Law provides a comprehensive overview of the company law field. Being located in the biggest port city of Europe the programme enables you to participate in company visits to see how things work in practice. The LL.M. programme Commercial and Company Law provides you with a unique combination of specialist courses in the field of company and commercial law, and with general courses in European Private Law and comparative private law. You are educated by excellent teaching staff. They have both a solid (international) academic background as a wealth of experience from commercial and legal practise. You study in one of the leading commercial centre and largest ports of Europe, which means you will often go “on-site” to see how things work in practice. Our graduates have great job perspectives! 
What aspects does the programme cover? Company Law
 The two main pillars of the Study Programme are 1. Company Law and 2. Commercial Law. The Company Law pillar focuses upon the main topics of corporate governance. Issues such as the functioning of the board of directors, shareholder rights and cross-border voting and some aspects of European labour law will be comprehensively discussed. Attention is also given to the EC-directives on the freedom of establishment, national and cross-border mergers, take over bids, representation, supra national companies and the Societas Europaea. Commercial Law
 The Commercial Law pillar consists of courses detailing the risks of international trade, how these risks can be allocated (e.g. by means of documents of title) and how they may be averted or minimized. 
Its focus is the individual contracts on which the cooperation between the multitude of businesses involved in an international sale of goods transaction is based as well as the legal foundations of these transactions. Such contracts include contracts of insurance, financing and payment, transport, storage and logistics. The legal foundations upon which this contractual cooperation rests include rights of ownership, security rights in goods, rules on liability, intellectual property rights and, due to the international nature of the dealings, guidelines as to which law applies and which court may be addressed. Practical skills
 
The Master Commercial Law distinguishes itself from other LL.M. programmes in Business law by putting an emphasis on private legal relationships, the balance between commercial law, corporate law and procedural law courses. 
Based in the port of Rotterdam, this programme educates legal professionals that are to become well versed in both Commercial and Company Law. Due to its position in the centre of a large trade hub the programme is able to offer you many opportunities for exploration of trade in practice by combining the theory that is taught with on-site visits and workshops.
