LLM European Private Law

University of Amsterdam
Campus Part time 1 - 2 years February 2017 Netherlands Amsterdam

Private law in Europe has undergone a rapid transformation throughout the last two decades. Originating from a branch of law that was scarcely affected by EU legislation, it has become the object of a multitude of harmonisation measures. [+]

Private law in Europe has undergone a rapid transformation throughout the last two decades. Originating from a branch of law that was scarcely affected by EU legislation, it has become the object of a multitude of harmonisation measures. Intervention by the EU legislature has evolved from a sectoral approach to a horizontal approach, to the point that adopting a comprehensive European Contract Law instrument is now high on the political agenda. As a result of this development, there is a growing demand for lawyers with a thorough understanding of existing European private law and the ongoing Europeanisation process within legal practices, as well as national and EU institutions and academic research institutes. Studying European Private and Commercial Law at the University of Amsterdam Should fundamental rights be used by judges in solving private law cases? To what extent can shareholders of a company also be creditors in the winding up of this company? Is it possible for a company to change its seat to another member state? When can you claim compensation from the airlines in case your flight was cancelled or delayed? These and other private and commercial law questions are addressed in the diverse courses our Master's programme offers. The curriculum provides students with a unique opportunity to specialise in European private law, through a comprehensive set of courses covering the issues that are central to the Europeanisation of private law. Students study existing European rules, current harmonisation endeavours and compare –in fields of law where European rules are lacking- national rules of the most influential European systems. Lecturers for the Master’s in European Private Law programme have diverse European backgrounds and many also work with the University of Amsterdam’s Centre for the Study of European Contract Law (CSECL), which conducts research specifically on the consequences of European integration and globalisation for private law. Students are invited to participate in the bi-weekly guest seminars organized by the CSECL. European Private Law as a Part-Time Programme It is possible to complete the Master's programme in European Private Law through part-time study. However, classes are only given during the day. Part-time students are advised to complete the programme in two years.

It is a mixture of courses chosen from the different specialisations in the three Master programmes and can also include courses of the first year of the Master if they were not previously followed by the student. In order to find out about the concrete courses and possibilities interested applicants should consult the programmes of all the Masters to be found under the menu points of the second year. In addition, the participation in a Moot court competition (more information here , areas of the competitions can cover the field of European Law in general, European Convention on Human Rights Law, Public International Law, Investment Arbitration Law, International Commercial Arbitration Law, WTO Law and others) is an obligatory part of this specialization for which a number of ECTS are granted, thereby compensating for regular courses. The competitions typically run during the first and a part of the second semester and the teams are put together after a selection process. Also, some courses that are specific to the General European Law Master are offered in the option SatComMedia Law (Programme to download here). These courses include amongst others European Media Law, Luxembourgish Media Law, Satellite communications in the international Legal context, European Space and Telecommunications Law, Intellectual Property Law, Data Protection Law, Internet cases litigation. Students of the General European Law Master can choose some of these courses or do the full list of courses (in that case covering the entire third semester) if they would like to receive a certification of having passed the option in SatComMediaLaw. Altogether, the courses chosen in the first semester add up to 30 ECTS and after a short trial period at the beginning of each winter semester the students hand in their final choices which are then accepted on individual basis by the course director. The second semester is entirely made up of writing a Master thesis of around 100-120 pages. Finding a topic, researching and writing gives students the possibility to show their ability for individual research and in-depth analysis of a specific legal question. The thesis is then defended in an oral exam and the combination of both makes up the 30 ECTS of the second semester. Students of the SatComMedia Law option choose a topic for their thesis in the specific field of the option and can combine writing the thesis with doing a ‘stage’ in a law firm, company or government agency active in satellite communications and media law.
