The Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance offers three Master programmes in Law. The focus of these Master programmes is on European Law and they are all bilingual, meaning that classes and exams are carried out both in English and in French. Each Master is a two-year programme. A student can choose to either follow the entire two-year programme or follow only the second year of a specialisation. Students must meet the specific requirements of admission in both cases. Each Master offers two specialisations in the second year. Applicants choose their specialisation during registration for the second year and indicate their motivation for a specific track already in their first year application. The Master degree is awarded upon successful completion of the second year.
Master en droit économique européen - LL.M. Contentieux Européen Droit Pénal Européen des Affaires Master en droit financier européen et international - LL.M Droit bancaire et financier européen Droit fiscal européen international Master en droit européen – LL.M. Droit Européen Général Droit Privé Européen The first year is a course programme common to all three Master programmes in Law.
It serves to broaden the knowledge acquired during the bachelor studies and will provide students with a deeper insight into European law. With its emphasis on European, comparative and international law, the Master programme naturally reflects its proximity to several European institutions such as the Court of Justice, the General Court, the European Investment Bank, the European Investment Fund and the European Court of Auditors. Courses in the second year of the Master programmes are taught by experts from these institutions as well as other practitioners and faculty members. Courses in the first year are taught mainly by professors from the University and some invited professor.
The first year also prepares students for the requirements during the second year of the Master, where in each specialisation in-depth competencies and practical application of the relevant European law are achieved. An overview of the courses offered during the first year can be found under “Programme”. The diversity of courses ranges from general introduction and overview courses as well as more specialized topics that give an insight to the different tracks; students can freely choose from the range of courses (of which not all are taught every year) typically five courses per semester. Teaching relies on problem-based learning methods. In addition, the possibility for participation in Moot Court competitions to train in a “real-life” application of knowledge is an integral part of the programme. Preparatory language courses are offered to students, as well as continuous language training during the year.
Access to the first year in one of the 6 LL.M. specialisations is open to applicants who hold a Bachelor’s degree in Law or an equivalent of at least three years of higher education according to the criteria required by the Bologna system (180 ECTS). Applications must include cover letter, CV, copies of previous grades and diplomas, certificates attesting to certain level of language skills (level B1 in French and level B2 in English acquired, for example, either through previous studies or through language tests), as well as one or two letters of recommendation from the candidate’s persons of reference.
