Globalisation and Law: Specialisation Human Rights

Course Description

Globalisation is impacting every area of economic, social and technological activity. It is having an enormous influence on international structures, governance and the legal systems of individual nations, posing challenges in all fields of the law. The globalisation of the law is producing a tremendous increase in international and regional regulation, global litigation and cross-border legal dialogue. Whether to serve multinational enterprises or indeed to control and regulate their activity, law firms, governments and international organisations alike are in growing need of lawyers who understand the complexities of globalisation and law.

The Master Globalisation and Law offers a unique one-year English taught programme designed to fill that need. Rather than taking the ‘globalist’ or the ‘anti-globalist’ perspective it teaches you to make up your own mind, to think ahead and to respond quickly to evolving situations.

The confluence of research interests at the Faculty of law creates a unique environment in which to approach the issues not only from the humanitarian perspective but also from the business point of view.

Among the programme’s assets is its small group setting and its very active student body composed of participants from all parts of the world.

The programme offers three specializations: Human Rights, Corporate and Commercial Law and International Trade and Investment Law. As an alternative for picking one of the tracks students are also allowed to combine courses from the three tracks in a so-called ‘free track’.

Career prospects

As a graduate of the Globalisation and Law programme you will be able to interpret, manage and anticipate changes in international law. You will have a broad understanding of supranational and international organisations and the impact of globalisation on national legal systems.

Graduates of the programme will have many career opportunities open to them, and will often work at:

law firms
international businesses
international organisations
