Program description

International & European Law University of GroningenDealing with Laws from A-Z

Does an international treaty take priority over national laws? And if so, is that the case for every state in the world? Can citizens themselves take a complaint to the European Court of Human Rights or the European Court of Justice? These are only a few of the topics dealt with in the Masters in International and European Law at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands.

This 3-year Masters in International and European Law from University of Groningen is designed to provide students who wish to pursue a professional career in an international environment an academic training in law without taking national legal system as the starting point. The focus is on teaching international and European Union law on the basis of a more general understanding of what law is and how it functions, rather than on a detailed knowledge of a particular legal system.

The basic aim of the International and European Law programme is to provide the students with an understanding of the content and functioning of international and European law in the context of its development and application in an international public or private economic or policy-making environment.

Graduates of the Masters in International and European Law not qualify for legal professions within national legal systems, as this would require further extensive training in domestic law.
