Program Description

Master in Legal Research

Utrecht University

Are you curious, analytical, and ready to take on new challenges in a dynamic academic environment? Are you interested in writing academic texts, or engaging in debate, and tackling complicated legal issues? Would you like the opportunity to complete an in-depth masters-level programme in law that extends beyond the standard one-year period? The two-year Legal Research master’s at Utrecht University may be the perfect choice for you!

Take Advantage Of Growing Need For Legal Researchers

For legal practitioners and academics alike, legal research skills are increasingly important. Law firms have a growing need for thorough, well-trained lawyers with excellent writing skills and a research-oriented mindset. The Legal Research programme will help you become the type of well-rounded lawyer that our changing society needs.

Become A Perceptive And Analytic Thinker

Legislative and executive processes at the international, national, and local levels need sharp analytical thinkers. Traditional law courses do not always provide graduates with the required knowledge and skills to meet this demand. Utrecht University developed the two-year Legal Research Master’s programme to fill this need. The Legal Research Master’s programme prepares you for a legal career as a practitioner in the commercial, public service, or academic sectors, and it also offers you an excellent foundation for further studies at the Ph.D. level. As part of this programme, you will complete courses in legal research skills as well as in your chosen field. You will also spend approximately one year engaged in legal research projects and writing a master’s thesis.
