Education at the Faculty of Law
Maastricht University Law College (UMLC)
The Maastricht University Law College (UMLC) is an extra-curricular programme for students who have the potential to excel. The UMLC offers its students an open and collaborative learning environment, in which students and staff work closely together and participate in a multitude of academic and extracurricular activities.
Student teams of the Maastricht law faculty score high at international pleading competitions, so-called moot court competitions. During such moot courts, teams work intensively on a hypothetical court case, prepare written submissions, and finally plead on behalf of their parties against other universities in front of benches of judges or law professors.
