About

A Master's programme on European civil and commercial law in context, this programme provides students 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).
