European Law School

Are you inquisitive, analytical and internationally-minded? Do you like coming up with creative solutions to complex legal questions? And can you see yourself providing clients with legal advice on European tenders, or migration to the EU? European Law School may be the programme you're looking for. It offers a broad range of courses on different areas of European law, such as competition law, criminal law, family law and financial regulation. You'll also be familiarised with the methods and content of legal argumentation. Upon graduation, your deep understanding of EU law will make you an excellent candidate for a legal position at an international organisation or a government institute. But your analytical skills and quick legal reasoning will also be an asset if you choose to pursue a career in national law.

      Maastricht team in the semi-final of the René Cassin moot court competition:

      This year’s team was composed of Salomé Grenet-Prechner, Mathilde Chignesse, and Lisa Beckers. The judges pointed out the very good quality of their arguments and the outstanding eloquence of the pleaders. The team managed to qualify to the semi-final of the competition and finished with a nice place of 16th out of 52 teams. Their coach, Pauline Melin, and the Faculty are proud of them. Congratulations girls!
