Why add a law degree?

With Global Law, you will learn about the different legal systems in the world. The program will give you a strong position on the job market and prepares you for leading positions in international companies and organizations. The combination with your existing degree, and the set of skills you will develop, is unique in the job market.

When you work in the legal department of a multinational, for example, it is essential that you know more than just the law. You will have knowledge that other lawyers are lacking. You can also bring legal knowledge to the table in your job as an art consultant or fundraiser for a non-governmental organization. The possibilities are endless.

If you aspire to become a lawyer in the traditional sense, such as an attorney, a barrister or a judge, it is necessary to have specific knowledge about one legal system. Needless to say, Global Law students do not specialize in one single legal system. For this reason, we have created several options for you to become further qualified in either the American legal system, Dutch legal system or that of England and Wales.

Are you interested in the Fast track?
