Students must complete at least 60 ECTS, including a minimum of 50 ECTS from LEGC courses and seminars. Students are free to choose courses from the other LL.M. programmes, allowing them to design their own curriculum in accordance with their academic interests and career goals.

Students may obtain minors in Human Rights, Private Law, Public Law and Sports Law, and have them officially recorded on their transcript. To obtain a minor, they must complete all the courses within the relevant specialization field.[MOU1] 

Our LL.M. classes vary in their subject matter and in the skills they provide, falling into two broad categories. Besides courses that are designed by some of the world’s top experts to provide our students with up-to-date knowledge on different fields of law, we offer a selection of skills seminars that prepare students for the real-world challenges of legal practice.

The courses and seminars available in the 2022-2023 academic year are listed below. Please note that adjustments may be made from year to year.
