Course content

The European Economic Law LLM programme covers all the central aspects of European Union Law, including:

  • Institutional law
  • Judicial protection
  • Substantive law (internal market)
  • Environmental law
  • Competition law
  • Market regulation (including state aid)
  • EU Trade Law
  • The European protection of human rights

While the emphasis of the programme is on European Economic Law, there is also an opportunity to include European Human Rights Law in your programme. The programme is a combination of courses and dissertation, affording participants the opportunity to develop research skills and experience, as well as to acquire new knowledge or deepen their existing knowledge. The Department of European and Economic Law (which delivers the core of the programme) is a leading centre of expertise and publications in the field of European Law; teaching is research-based, offered by a staff which is at the forefront of legal scholarship, with an outstanding international reputation. It's a great team in which to work, and an excellent team with which to study European Economic Law.
