The Master of Laws at KU Leuven has a marked international dimension with European law being an important focus. This is hardly surprising given KU Leuven's close proximity to the central EU institutions in Brussels. The programme taps into the knowledge and expertise of a large network of legal professionals who experience daily exposure to and professional contact with the European institutions.
The programme includes a visit to Luxemburg where the students attend a hearing at the Court of Justice of the European Union in Luxembourg in the first semester and a visit to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg in the second semester. The LL.M. students will also have the opportunity to engage in a discussion over current issues in international affairs with the staff members of the Council of Europe and the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
Given its philosophy grounded in European law, its highly skilled teachers and its openness to the study and practice of various types of law - not to mention, its close proximity to Brussels - the Leuven LLM offers significant added value for students seeking legal careers in Europe.
