Participate in a pioneering problem-oriented programme of Law at the University of Antwerp that defies traditional boundaries within the legal discipline. Explore a law in context approach in course modules on commercial transactions and disputes, on diversity and the law, on European constitutionalism and fundamental rights and on sustainable development and global justice. 


The programme

The Law programme of the University of Antwerp seeks to attract participants from across the globe, including from the global South. By participating, you will become part of a global network, based in Europe, and establish contacts that will be essential for your future professional career.

The programme prepares participants for practicing law in an international environment, either at home or abroad. The skills courses offered allow you to choose the professional direction you prefer: to work in international organizations, in the private sector or at an NGO, to take on a legal profession, or to work as a lawyer in an interdisciplinary context.
