About the course

This programme offers a genuinely inter-disciplinary approach to European studies for law students in order to analyse how our understanding of the nature of the European Union is shaped by our particular disciplinary perspectives.

Members of staff in the Sutherland School of Law have engaged in major research in this area spanning the full range of European Law from the institutional structure of the EU to critiques of existing area of EU law such as competition law and environmental law.

Student Profile(s)

Graham Butler

As a graduate of Business and Law, I took a keen interest in EU affairs and sought to pursue a Master of Laws (LLM) in European Law and Public Affairs at UCD. It is an ideal postgraduate programme for those interested in law, politics, international relations, the EU, and current affairs. The course offers a healthy mixture of legal subjects pertaining to the European Union, in addition to politics
and international relations, which perfectly complement each other. Studying EU law in all its various forms really enhanced my education and my understanding of the formulation and application of EU law throughout the EU member states. At UCD, time spent outside lectures is just as important as the time spent inside. This master’s degree offers students the opportunity to develop the edge that is vital for competing in a competitive graduate environment. I currently work as a parliamentary and political adviser to a member of Dáil
Éireann, who is Chairman of an Oireachtas Joint Committee.
