Overview

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.
