The European Economic and Financial Criminal Law programme from University of Luxembourg consists of six successive modules, providing students an in-depth view into several key aspects of European criminal law, comprising the following areas of European Criminal Law:
- regulation and enforcement within the EU,
- European criminal law and criminal procedure,
- corporate criminal law and compliance,
- judicial cooperation and the European law enforcement agencies.
This LL.M. provides students with a competitive edge to successfully enter the rapidly expanding field of European economic and financial criminal law in Luxembourg or abroad, for example as a compliance expert, white-collar crime lawyer or EU official. Moreover, the programme can also be a springboard for further academic studies at PhD-level.
- The Programme will familiarise the students with the specific knowledge and skills needed to work in the field of European Economic and Financial Criminal Law through various teaching methods.
- Interactive courses are taught by leading European academics and practitioners who promote questions, comments and discussions – as well as essential argumentation and negotiating skills - as an integral part of their teaching effort.
- In addition, students prepare oral presentations to practice crucial briefing techniques.
- A moot court competition will provide them with an opportunity to demonstrate and improve their teamwork capacity. Being one of the few truly bilingual programmes, the LL.M. in European Economic and Financial Criminal Law will greatly enhance language skills in English and French.
