At the International and European Law programme offered by The Hague University of Applied Sciences in years one and two, you’ll unravel international court cases through theory, hands-on group projects and expert guest lectures from our extensive network. In year three, you can specialise in a legal field.
You’ll go on an exchange before completing the programme with an internationally orientated internship and thesis. Throughout the four years we’ll drip feed you legal analysis, advisory skills, representation, decision making, regulation, management, organisation and legal communication.
After graduating from the International and European Law programme, you will have a Bachelor of Law (LL.B.) and will be fully equipped to kick-start your career as a legal professional. However, in most countries, a Bachelor’s degree alone will not make you eligible to enter the bar. If you want to become a lawyer (advocate, solicitor, barrister, etc.), then you will have to select the country in which you would like to practice law and then establish that country’s additional requirements. In the Netherlands, for example, it means you will have to follow a Master’s degree in law and attain a so-called ‘civil effect’.
