Professor Pierre Larouche about the program in Global Law

"In today's world without borders, large organizations have to deal with complex legal situations. We prepare students for this challenging environment."

In for a challenge?

This challenging program is taught by leading researchers at one of the largest research schools in law in the Netherlands. A limited number of students is admitted each year to this program. This means you will work together with ambitious students who are keenly interested and work hard.

The program has a strong interdisciplinary component, which allows you to integrate knowledge from different fields of study, such as economics and sociology, and to see the bigger picture. You will study law from a transnational perspective in order to oversee legal issues in a way that is not limited to only one legal system. Moreover, by combining skills and knowledge from different disciplines, you will have a unique edge in the job market.

If you are not afraid of an intellectual and personal challenge, and if you have what it takes to become a transnational lawyer, then this is the program for you.
