Are monopolies allowed within the EU? How can a German company protect itself against aid from the Dutch government to Philips? The European Economic Law program covers the central aspects of European Market Law, meaning that students learn about the many different types of law, including institutional law, labor law, tax law, and the European protection of human rights.
The programme consists of six courses encompassing a broad range of topics, including some with a more political science approach. In addition, you will attend a seminar and write a thesis. The language of instruction and examination is English.
While the emphasis of the programme is on European Economic Law, there is also an opportunity to include European Human Rights Law in your programme. The programme is a combination of courses and dissertation, affording participants the opportunity to develop research skills and experience, as well as to acquire new knowledge or deepen their existing knowledge.
The Department of European and Economic Law (which delivers the core of the programme) is a leading center of expertise and publications in the field of European Law; teaching is research-based, offered by a staff which is at the forefront of legal scholarship, with an outstanding international reputation. It's a great team in which to work, and an excellent team with which to study European Economic Law.
The programme is designed to equip its graduates for work in major law firms, the Community Institutions and as in-house lawyers. It is also suitable for those who are interested in the interaction between law and politics or for those who are looking for a career in policy-making or policy-influencing roles.
