Course detail

European law is an exciting and rapidly developing discipline. There are few areas of national law and policy within Europe that remain untouched by the influence of European legislation. The scope of EU law, however is even wider, as Europe is becoming an increasingly important actor on the international stage.

In this programme, you will focus on the various aspects of European Law, as well as the European protection of human rights. You will study topics ranging from EU competition law to EU external relations law, from European social policy to internal market regulations and EU institutional law. You will gain in-depth knowledge about these aspects, while at the same time developing the professional skills needed in a EU-related legal career.

Purpose

Our aim in this programme is to provide you with in-depth academic knowledge, and to equip you with the professional skills needed in a EU-related legal career. For this purpose, teaching is done in small, seminar-style classes, with ample attention for practical skills in special `privatissimum’ and `practicum’ classes. Our programme attracts students from within and outside of the EU, which makes for a truly international atmosphere.

Programme

The European Law Master’s specialisation is founded on the Europa Institute’s research, ‘Securing the Rule of Law in a World of Multi-level Jurisdiction’. This has three components (‘Trias Europea’): the institutional structure of the Union, the protection of fundamental rights in an integrated Europe, and the regulation of economic relations. These three topics are included in every component of this programme, addressing the question as to how the rule of law (i.e. democracy, protection of human rights, adequate legal remedies) can be maintained while the law is developed at several levels.

Treaty of Lisbon

You will study the institutional structure of the Union (looking at the present Treaty structure as well as at proposed reforms in the Treaty of Lisbon) and the manner in which compliance with the fundamental rights within the legal order of the Union is ensured. In addition, you will learn about the position of the European Union in the world, the relation between EU law and national law, and the way in which trade and commerce is regulated by the EU.

Careers

The European Law Master’s programme offered by Europa Institute at Leiden will provide you with the skills necessary for a successful legal career in the private or public sector. Our alumni have found employment in:
• European institutions, such as the Council of Europe;
• international organisations, such as the United Nations, the OECD and the OCSE;
• national and local government;
• governmental and non-governmental organisations, such as UNHCR, IOM, Amnesty International and Greenpeace
• corporate companies;
• major law firms in Amsterdam, London, Brussels and Luxembourg;
• academia.

Course detail

In the contemporary world, the coexistence and interaction of regional, national and international legal regimes has become a characteristic feature, which is also true for human rights. In many cases where human rights are at risk, different human rights protection mechanisms may be applicable.

It is for this reason that in this Advanced Master of Laws, you will study human rights law in a comparative perspective.

Format

Our programme is characterised by small-scale teaching, which encourages intensive interaction between students and lecturers. We pride ourselves on being able to offer contributions from renowned human rights experts who bring the most recent developments and issues to the class room.

A study trip to human rights organisations in Strasbourg and/or Geneva is an integral part of this programme and will add to a genuine understanding of human rights law by helping you to put theory into practice. After graduation, you will have gained the necessary international experience and skills you need to work in the field of human rights law anywhere in the world.

International Children’s Rights is a programme whose time has come. Recently, the main treaty in this area – the UN Conventionon the Rights of the Child (CRC) – reached its 25th anniversary. Also, there is an ever deepening consciousness at the international and domestic levels regarding the role that implementing children’s rights can have in both the private and the public spheres of life.

Visit the website: http://en.mastersinleiden.nl/programmes/international-childrens-rights/en/introduction

Course detail

International children’s rights (law) is a unique area of law because it is multi-layered (covering international, regional and national legal spectrums) and interdisciplinary (crossing different areas of law, both domestically and internationally). Children’s rights intersect with the areas of civil, criminal and administrative law, as well as public international law, international humanitarian law, international criminal law and international labour law. A special feature concerns the interplay between children’s rights and private international law, in particular with the instruments developed by the Hague Conference on Private International Law.

The multi-layered and legal interdisciplinary nature of international children’s rights requires specialist knowledge in order to be able to assess its meaning and implications for the position of children at the international and domestic level.

Format

Our programme is characterised by small-scale teaching, which encourages intensive interaction between students and lecturers. Students in our Advanced Masters programmes come from various countries, which contributes to a truly international study environment.
