We are very happy to welcome you to Leiden Law School to spend a semester or year studying with us. Here you can find information on course registration, schedules and more.
Leiden Law School offers an extensive range of English-taught law courses at undergraduate level.
Specially adapted law courses
Many courses have a specially adapted timetable with early exams and minimal course overlap, making them ideal for exchange and study-abroad students. In the online prospectus these have a catalogue number starting with 22989.
Other Law courses
You may also follow law courses with a different catalogue number, i.e. not starting with 22989, as long as these are open to exchange students in the prospectus. But be aware that they may have overlapping classes or later exams.
The courses take place at different locations:
Please find below the schedule for our first and second semester.
