Retour en début de pageStudy objectives

After a three-year bachelor, the programme in Master en droit has the dual objective of adding to the student's general training by teaching fundamental subjects (core courses) and providing him with specialist training in subjects more closely linked to his future professional career (focuses and optional courses). The student chooses his specialisation from the coherent set of subjects.
The balance between general training and specialised training should provide the student with the opportunity to acquire legal skills of a highly technical level, aided by skills in critical reflection.
The Master's programme is also intended to help students familiarise themselves with the world of work (internship and dissertation), broaden their linguistic skills (English courses and exchanges with KULeuven) and perfect their training abroad (Erasmus exchanges).
