The Bachelor's programme offers a broad overview of most of the branches of law. In addition to the purely legal course units, the curriculum also contains a broad range of political-philosophical, historical, economic and humanities course units. We expect you to be a smooth talker and have a facile pen. You will hone these skills (written and oral) further during exercises and the Bachelor’s dissertation. These exercises have as additional asset that they are an ideal preparation for the exam.
Our two-year Master’s programme has a highly flexible curriculum. It contains six mandatory course units and room for twelve-odd electives. There are several lists of electives to choose from: ‘course units with a skills component’ (work placement, international moot court, a legal clinic...), ‘in-depth course units’ (in-depth study of a branch of law), and ‘broadening course units’ (specific legal or metalegal subjects). Your choice of electives depends on your personal interests, your future career choices, the teaching style, etc. The programme allows you to specialise to a certain extent, while your diploma still remains generally applicable to all legal professions.
The two-year Master’s curriculum contains a Master’s dissertation, for the purpose of which you will set up and conduct independent legal research. At the end of the programme you will present your findings in the form of a written thesis.
A Bachelor’s degree in Law also gives access to other Master programmes than the ones mentioned here. Please take a look at the tab “Postgraduate Studies”.
