About

The law faculties of the University of Leuven (KU Leuven) and the University of Zurich offer a double degree programme which is fully taught in English. The two-year Master of Law programme incorporates one year of study in Leuven and another in Zurich.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The Master of Law at KU Leuven  focuses on each institution's individual strengths: International and European Law in Leuven and Arbitration Law, Financial Law and Human Rights Law in Zurich. Switzerland enjoys a world-class reputation as a centre of arbitration and banking, and many international institutions are based there in Geneva, just as they are in Brussels, some 30km from Leuven.

Upon completion of the programme, students receive a double degree - one from KU Leuven and another from the University of Zurich. A double degree from two leading law faculties in Europe will be of enormous added value for your future professional career in an international context.

Career opportunities

The Master of Law programme is a stepping stone towards an interesting legal career. As experts in European and international law, our students work in international law firms, a wide variety of public service fields at all levels of the government and in European and international institutions and in special interest groups.
