Program Description

The LLM in International and European Law offers the broadest spectrum of options available for students with an international career or research orientation. It allows students to handpick courses from a wealth of topics of European (EU) or international relevance, enabling an educational programme tailored to their personal interests and career needs. Ghent University Law School has a wide array of English language courses on a great variety of European and international law issues. The LLM programme provides students with the opportunity to design their own course of studying accordance with their career priorities. It enables them to gain expertise on many relevant and topical issues of international law. For students seeking to broadly develop their skills and knowledge for a career with an international dimension, this programme offers the best possible personal preparation. While enabling students to focus on particular subjects of interest, it also fully accommodates the needs of those students who seek a general European and international legal education. With its combination of academic and practical skills modules, the programme prepares students for the international professional life that is increasingly the reality of law professionals all over the world.
