The LLM or Master of Laws is an internationally-recognized postgraduate degree in law. LLM programs are usually open to those who have first obtained a degree in law.
The skills and concepts one learns from studying law can depend on the country where the studies take place. Unlike some law studies, studying European law can teach a student about legal ideas that spread beyond a single country.
Europe, one of the world's seven continents, is usually known as the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia. Second smallest continent, with 10,180,000 (km2), the area regroups 50 countries.
