Students are trained to evaluate legal issues in a unique way, encouraging analysis that goes beyond national jurisdictions in order to draw upon European legal sources, and to propose more innovative solutions. Private law is explored through case methods combined with a presentation of the relevant legal provisions.
The Master in European Private Law at the University of Luxembourg mixes theoretical and practical approaches with students taught how to write memoranda and critical reviews of legislative documents and scholarly doctrines, as well as how to organise various legal events.
5 reasons to specialise in European Private Law at the University of Luxembourg:
- Be at the cutting edge of a developing field of European law still lacking in professional specialists.
- Gain practical experience through clinical teaching and the Consumer Law Clinic (held in French), recognised by the Luxembourg Bar Association.
- Mandatory internship gives students the opportunity to gain further practical experience using their academic expertise.
- Monthly workshops with practitioners, academics and policy-makers on the latest news in the field of European private law.
- Taught by leading academics in the field, supported by judges and advocate generals of the Court of the Justice of the European Union.
