Advanced Master European and International Business Law  - Leiden University

European and International Business Law (Advanced LL.M.)

Career preparation

The programme encourages engagement with active professionals so you can develop a network and have a smooth transition into the professional world.

A number of the programme’s instructors either have been or still are actively involved in the legal or business arena, and practising professionals are invited to teach as guest lecturers. This gives you the opportunity to interact with them and learn about their work and the latest developments in the field. You will also take a study trip to Luxembourg and Brussels to visit the European Commission and the European Court of Justice to see how they operate and to make professional contacts.

If you choose to participate in the European Law Moot Court or the European Law Students’ Association Moot Court, the most renowned competition in the field of WTO law, you will receive additional training and gain experience in research, analysis, legal writing, and pleading and arguing a case.

Career services

One of the biggest assets you will have in your career is your professional network. Through your interactions with professionals in the classroom, as well as during your internship, study trip and site visits, you will begin to build your own international network. These contacts could greatly enhance your career prospects, as they often help with job leads and recommendations.

Every year, a special Career Week is organised for all advanced master’s students, which includes various workshops, presentations and trainings.
