LLM in International Business Law

General

Program Description

The LLM in International Business Law is a flagship programme for students seeking to specialize in the international legal aspects of business practice in our globalizing world. While allowing a degree of personal choice, it steers students towards the key legal building blocks of international business law, guaranteeing an advanced degree with real added value in a business-oriented career. The Ghent LLM in International Business Law allows students to gain in-depth knowledge about all practice areas and is aimed at future or already experienced lawyers and in-house counsel dealing with commercial, corporate, securities and banking legal issues, as well as international economic law. Built around the renowned Financial Law Institute, the programme combines the expertise of its professors with that of experienced practitioners in areas like M&A, Intellectual Property, and Arbitration, to bring you hands-on experience. All courses in the LLM focus either on EU-wide regulation or use a comparative law approach. The programme is ideally suited for students from outside the EU who need a thorough background in EU regulation and for those from within the EU who want to escape the provincial study of national law.

NOTE: The application process for the academic year 2020-2021 is open since 1 October 2019 (and will be open until 1 June for the applicants who do not need a visa and 1 March for all applicants who need a visa).
