European Union law has become highly significant over recent decades, not just for member states but beyond in transnational and international governance. Despite the multiple crises currently faced by the European Union, European Integration remains a key process shaping developments in the member states, the neighbour countries and international regulatory reforms and governance processes.
The LLM in European Law and Governance aims to generate a comprehensive understanding of EU and transnational law and governance in a global context and to enable graduates to critically approach a range of problems in the field, with a specialisation either on substantive aspects or on procedural aspects of the theme.
The programme is unique in offering a law in context approach to European Union Law, Transnational Law by teaching substantive law alongside legal theory and political and sociological approaches to federalism and multilevel governance. A high level of academic engagement is complemented by the opportunity to obtain subject specific placements in a competitive process.
Students can specialise on general EU topics and graduate with an LLM in EU Law and Governance or specialise on environmental and sustainability issues and graduate with an LLM in Environmental Law and Governance.
Depending on success, students can either deliver a 60 credit (20 ECTS) dissertation or a module consisting of an internship and a dissertation at the same time.
The programme is delivered through a series of taught modules and culminates in the submission of a dissertation on an original topic.
