LL.M. Law in A European and Global Context
This is a programme like no other offered in Europe. It is not simply one more programme focusing on European and International Law, our aim is to teach Law in a European and Global Context and to do so with a top international faculty and employing new methodologies and pedagogical techniques.
WHY LAW IN A EUROPEAN AND GLOBAL CONTEXT
Law is changing. Lawyers increasingly need to operate in the context of a plurality of jurisdictions and legal sources. As a consequence, a growing number of legal actors (in courts as outside courts and even in the legislative process) need to operate in multiple jurisdictions and be comfortable working with different legal sources.
At the same time, economic and social integration increases the multinational character of the cases in which lawyers are called in to assist on a daily basis. This has also given rise to an emerging international market for legal services. All this requires a different type of lawyer from the traditional lawyer trained exclusively in a particular domestic legal system. It requires a truly international legal education, where courses are specifically tailored to meet the challenges of this pluralism of legal sources and jurisdictions. This is the purpose of this Master/LL.M. Degree on Law in a European and Global Context.
The programme will adopt the approach to teaching that Joseph Weiler has coined as “Total Law™”. This represents a bold pedagogical and intellectual break with the traditional ways of teaching...

This programme provides the momentum for anyone interested in a rewarding career in law, business, politics or policy within the EU, or beyond. In-depth knowledge of EU law has become even more relevant after the recent vote of the UK electorate to leave the EU. EU law is a complex and fascinating subject that weighs ever more heavily on policymaking in the UK, Europe and internationally, which is why in-depth knowledge of European law is vital to any legal career.
The negotiations on the UK’s departure from the EU will raise complex questions with a possible special status for Scotland (or even renewed calls for independence) adding a further layer. Even after a so-called Brexit, EU law will remain relevant to lawyers in the UK not only when they are dealing with pre-Brexit questions, but also because any future EU-UK relationship is likely to be heavily influenced by it. Against that background, the importance of advanced knowledge in EU law to employment in the public and private sectors will only increase....
