LLM - European Law School
Taught in English
The European Law School is a unique one-year English taught programme aimed at offering students a well-informed understanding at an advanced level of the process of the Europeanisation of law. In particular, the programme aims to provide in-depth knowledge of European Union law, the manner in which it affects the national legal order of the Member States and/or Comparative Law and its methods (with an emphasis on the legal system of the Netherlands - as the programme's home legal system - and that of Germany, France and England as representatives of the traditional major legal families in Europe). The programme equips students with the tools and skills necessary to successfully compete for positions and parti¬cipate in a national, European and/or transnational, legal work environment. The ELS programme comprises three tracks (or specialisations): EU law, Ius Commune and the ‘free track’. The EU law specialisation focuses on EU law and how it is (to be) applied by and in the Member States. The Ius Commune specialisation involves comparative law, studies common principles of European private and public law and explores how these principles can help to develop and shape EU law. The free track allows students to combine the main features and benefits of the EU law and Ius Commune specialisations. The courses are taught by members of the Maastricht Centre for European law (MCEL), which is one of Europe’s largest and most prestigious centres for the study of European Law. Prof.... [-]
