With European law exerting an increasing influence on the contents of national legal systems, expertise in this area is becoming sought-after by both private and public organizations.
The master International and European Law (IEL) deals with the interplay between national and European Union law - focusing on the manifold ways in which the laws emanating from the European Union and other European organizations are influencing the legal developments within national states.
Conducted over one intensive year, this program offers students the opportunity to gain in-depth specialized knowledge. Related to these themes, two separate tracks have been formed, each with its own focus and study program. Small class sizes and interactive teaching methods ensure a high level of participation by students during the program.
