Air and Space Law (Advanced LL.M.)
The programme Air and Space Law is also offered in a blended learning version. Blended learning is a combination of distance learning and face-to-face learning that enables participants to pursue their studies alongside employment or other commitments.
Blended Learning students largely study from their homes or offices and communicate with the teaching staff through the virtual learning platform Brightspace and via email.
The duration of the Blended Learning programme is two years. During this time, Blended Learning students come to Leiden three times for a period of one to two weeks, in order to kick-off the courses by following face-to-face classes, to engage in discussions with peers and to make use of the University’s facilities for conducting research. These periods are scheduled in such a way that they coincide with the start of the semester of the full-time Adv. LL.M curriculum, meaning that the Blended Learning students will come to Leiden at the beginning of September and February..
Assessment takes place through the regular online submission of assignments and research papers for each course. Other elements of the programme include completing a Practicum consisting of practical exercises and writing an Adv. Master’s Thesis.
An overview of the courses and the curriculum can be found in the Prospectus.
Candidates who would like to apply for this version of the programme should have prior knowledge of, or be familiar with, air and/or space law, as demonstrated by sufficient, relevant work experience in air and/or space law. Working professionals in the fields of air and/or space law who have recently graduated from law studies are also welcome to apply.
The Blended Learning programme has two intakes. Students can either commence studies in September, and start with air law courses, or in February, and begin with space law.
