European Private Law
A Master's programme on European civil and commercial law in context. It provides students with a coherent set of courses covering the issues central to the Europeanisation of private law.
Are you up to the challenge and ready to become the very best private lawyer you can possibly be? Do you want to look beyond the letter of law and discuss the justice and politics implicit in the rules of private law? Learn how to resolve cross-border private law issues in multiple European jurisdictions? Then come and study European Private Law at the University of Amsterdam.
In the European Private Law Master's at the Amsterdam Law School, students with a passion for private law experience a small-scale programme of the highest quality in a truly international environment. Students examine the core issues of private law from a comparative and transnational perspective. Our students are trained to analyse and anticipate legal developments and understand them in the light of the socio-economic and political context in which they occur. This unique mix of positive law and theoretical/critical analysis helps students to develop a creative approach to private law issues and provides them with the knowledge and skills needed to develop their careers at the highest level of national and international practice.
