Learning by doing is key to this programme and, as such, knowledge and understanding gained through theoretical modules is complemented by training in legal analysis, argumentation and research.
Your professors take a supportive role in this self-created, individualised approach to your studies. In the Capita Selecta modules you will be trained in essential skills, such as quickly deepening your knowledge in a current, specialised legal topic. From the very beginning, you will also take part in the Research and Thesis Training that prepares you to write your master’s thesis, the culmination of your LLM programme. If you have the drive to go the extra mile in your studies, there is – the LLM's Honours Programme – an additional (extra-curricular) honours programme for the best and most highly motivated students. Master’s programmes within Utrecht University’s School of Law are based on multidisciplinary research conducted by the Faculty of Law, Economics and Governance. This research takes into account socio-economic and sociopolitical perspectives, as well as the impact of European law on national laws.
