This programme provides students with a unique opportunity to specialise in European private law, with a coherent set of courses covering the issues central to the Europeanisation of private law.
The central aim of this programme is to train a new generation of truly European private lawyers in developing a broad and deep understanding of the ongoing Europeanisation process and its dynamic. Private and commercial law questions are analysed from both a supranational and a comparative perspective. The strength of the programme is that it regards European private law as an existing and continuously developing multi-level system. Another central feature of this programme is that it integrates relevant insights from other disciplines (e.g. economics and politics).
The Master's programme in European Private Law offers a variety of courses on European and comparative private law. Students are expected to obtain 60 ECTS credits throughout the course of the degree, including 30 ECTS credits of core courses, 20 ECTS credits of elective courses, and a thesis of 10 ECTS credits. The core courses are European Contract Law, Comparative Law, Private Law and the Internal Market, EU Private International Law and European Company Law.
