About the course

Globalisation has brought about a situation where lawyers are now required to grapple with national, international, European, and transnational laws when they apply norms. In the two-year research-oriented Master's Programme in Global Governance Law (GGL), you develop the skills to understand and deal with the challenges of globalising law

You study public international law, European Union law, global administrative law, advanced human rights law and examine for example international institutions, decision-making and governance in the EU. You can also specialise in Russian law, Chinese law or engage in interdisciplinary studies in Global Politics and Communication.
