Many of today’s challenges demand a response from EU law. As the most sophisticated international organization in the world the EU deals with issues like (mass) migration, climate change and cybercrime. This track of the Master's International and European Law gives you the tools to unlock the many fields of EU law and to critically reflect on them.


The study programme

This programme provides you with a solid foundation in substantive and institutional EU Law. At least one course in your curriculum is part of the Amsterdam Law Practice, our unique, award winning experiential education programme. A contemporary way of learning, in which you learn by doing and develop your professional identity by reflecting on who you are as a legal professional. The Amsterdam Law Practice received a Higher Education Award in 2022.

The core curriculum is composed of 3 compulsory courses, including a moot court. On top of that, you can also apply for the European Law Moot Court or work on real cases at the Amsterdam European Law Clinic.
