European Law School

If European trade rules are different than the German rules, which law governs the shipment of goods from London to Berlin? Can the United Kingdom restrict the number of refugees that wish to come to their country after being taken in by Greece or France? If you enjoy finding answers to these types of questions, you should consider the European Law School programme. You’ll study European and international law as well as the legal systems from different EU Member States (comparative law). This will prepare you to work as a legal professional at a regional, national and international level, both in the private sector as well as in government. With further training, which is also offered, you can also gain access to regulated professions such as a lawyer, public prosecutor or judge.

    The work lawyers do, the way they do it – indeed, the entire labour market – is changing radically. This calls for new, ‘soft’ skills, which in turn requires an education revolution. And to this end innovative technology can make an important contribution, according to Bram Akkermans, Catalina Goanta and Gwen Noteborn from Maastricht University’s Faculty of Law. They are integrating simulations, virtual worlds and holograms into their teaching. “Innovative education is in our DNA.”
