International Law

The LL.M. (master of laws) is an internationally recognized postgraduate law degree. An LL.M. strength just usually does not allow one to practice law; in most cases, LL.M. students must earn a professional degree

With all of the standards, treaties and agreements that are in effect on the modern international stage, countries need legal experts to keep everything straight. This is the reason that many law students earn their LLM in international law.

 

The people, language, and culture of the Netherlands is referred to as "Dutch". A modern European country today, Netherlands preserved its highly international character and is known for its liberal mentality. The Netherlands has many universities. The country has recently converted their own titles into the bachelor/master system. There are two types of universities: Academic (focussing more on theoretical knowledge, aka "Universiteit") or Applied Sciences (focussing more on practical knowledge, aka "Hogeschool")
