About

Today’s Europe demands lawyers who possess a thorough mastery of European law. The European Union increasingly affects all areas of law, and the national legal systems of its member states have reached a high level of integration.

European Law programme offered by Utrecht University provides a thorough grounding in European law, covering areas such as internal market law, competition law, social law, judicial protection, human rights law, criminal law and public law.

Two Tracks

You can choose from two distinctive tracks within the European Law programme:

  • Criminal Law
  • European Law

Our unique programme will help you build both substantive and institutional knowledge of European law while giving you an opportunity to analyse European law in relation to the legal systems of the member states. The flexibility of this programme means that you will be able to focus on areas of personal interest. For example, you may choose to take a specialisation or courses from our other master’s programmes to create a custom minor.

This programme is taught by a team of renowned scholars with extensive professional experience in the field of European law. It is also highly international and welcomes students from all over the world each year.

Preparation For A Wide Range Of Work Environments

The Master’s in European Law is a rigorous, customisable programme of study that will enable you to develop your academic, practical, writing, and oral skills through a combination of case studies, moot courts, research and visits to European legal and professional organisations.

By the end of the programme, you will be able to reflect critically on legal issues and to recognise, understand and analyse the relationship between the laws of member states and the wider European Union. You will gain an excellent foundation for your career of choice, whether you aim to build a career in a law firm or major multinational company or work for a European institution, an international organization or a local or national government.
