Law firms, governments and international organisations alike are in growing need of lawyers who can navigate through the legal complexities of this globalising world. The master's in Globalisation and Law - Human Rights from Maastricht University is a unique one-year English-taught programme designed to fulfil that need.


Diversity and debate

  • At Maastricht University’s Faculty of Law, we embrace a diversity of viewpoints, and debate is central to our curriculum. Instead of taking a ‘globalist’ or ‘anti-globalist’ stance, issues are discussed from different angles. You'll be invited to consider the arguments and make up your own mind. We also encourage you to participate in our moot courts and practice your argumentative reasoning skills. You’ll learn how to think ahead and respond quickly to situations - skills that will be invaluable later on in your legal career.

Problem-Based Learning (PBL)

  • As with many Maastricht University programmes, the Faculty of Law’s programmes are taught using Problem-Based Learning (PBL). In small tutorial groups of up to 16 students, you seek solutions to ‘problems’ taken from real-world situations. PBL requires you to be proactive in setting learning goals and encourages you to engage your peers over matters of law, helping you build the social skills necessary for future legal practice.
The Globalisation and Law - Human Rights programme is offered at Maastricht University.
