Is International and European Law a programme for me?
Students who wish to embark upon broad internationally focused legal studies are very suitable for this programme. As a jurist you have a broad general knowledge and you are aware of what goes on in the world. It is important to be able to think in a logical manner and to be able to analyze problems. Since written and oral formulating is a very important part of the future job description, it is necessary to possess strong communicative skills
What does International and European Law study look like?
The bachelor programme takes three years. The first year teaches all basic law fields and is therefore broad in character. Concepts of private law, administrative law, constitutional law, criminal law, etc will be discussed, including the start of some interdisciplinary components of the programme. In the second year these fields of law will be expanded more and will be dealt with more in-depth. Besides that, European and International Law will be discussed to a much larger extent. Also research methods and training is included in the second year. The third year ends your bachelor programme by writing a thesis on a law subject of your choice, which will be defended in front of supervisors and fellow students. This third year also requires students to study one semester at a university abroad.
Graduates of the bachelor programme in International and European Law will – after having completed an additional master programme - be qualified for careers in diplomacy, as civil servants for national ministries, the EU, the UN or other international organizations, in non-governmental organizations (such as Amnesty International or Greenpeace), in the international commercial sector (such as Unilever or Shell), or in academic teaching and research. Entry into traditional legal professions (advocate, attorney, barrister, judge, etc.) is not guaranteed upon completion of the programme as such entry is conditional on national requirements. The programme does not qualify for these traditional legal professions in the Netherlands; additional courses will be needed should one wish to qualify.
