International Laws at Maastricht University

Are you ambitious, analytical and eager to learn? Would you like to pursue a legal career at an international organisation? And are you at the top of your class in law, but do you also have a talent for languages? Then you should consider getting a master’s in International Laws. You’ll combine courses on international, European and comparative law with training in French and an additional foreign language other than English. You’ll also broaden your knowledge of different legal systems by spending at least one semester at one of our partner universities abroad. The programme allows you to compile a tailor-made curriculum from courses offered by the European Law School and the Globalisation and Law programme. As a graduate, you will be equipped with a thorough understanding of international, European and/or national law. You’ll also have a fluency in at least one foreign language. This unique skillset will allow you to thrive in whatever area of international or European law you want to work in!

The content of the International Laws curriculum is largely defined by the student. Alongside compulsory courses that provide a firm grasp of international law, you will choose a series of elective courses during each of the four teaching periods of the programme. One elective can be replaced with participation in an international moot court competition. During the second year, you will complete a master’s thesis under the close supervision of a faculty member.
