Program description

Master of Laws (LLM)

The Master of Laws is taught by leading specialists in their fields and allows students to specialise in European business law or international and European public law. 

The programme hasa marked international dimension with European law being an important focus. This is hardly surprising given KU Leuven's close proximity to the central EU institutions in Brussels. The programme taps into the knowledge and expertise of a large network of legal professionals who experience daily exposure to and professional contact with the European institutions.

The programme includes attending hearings at the Court of Justice of the European Union in Luxembourg in the first semester and at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg in the second. Engaging in the debate over the current issues in international affairs with the staff members of the Council of Europeandthe European Parliament in Strasbourg during the second semester is also part of the LLM Master’s programme.

Members of the professorial staff of the LLM programme generally hold degrees from top universities in the United States and the United Kingdom and many have substantial professional experience as prominent legal practitioners.


The course is predominantly determined by an area of specialisation of your choice:

  • International and European Business Law
  • International and European Public Law

Additional courses from the alternative option to your choice can be followed as elective courses. Each specialisation includes eight clinics led by distinguished legal and business practitioners.
