International & European Law - English - Full-time

When you complete the degree programme you could become a trade policy analyst, researching trade-related policies at the OECD in Paris. But as a young professional, you do much more. You’ll discover the culture at your company and what the profession does on a daily basis. You’ll attend meetings and company parties. You’ll also learn all there is to know about your market - the latest developments, the competition and what they do.

Can I become a lawyer or a judge after I graduate?

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’.

Continue studying

More and more Law graduates continue their education after graduating from THUAS. Outside the Netherlands, you can follow a masters after graduation. Law students have enrolled for masters at King’s College and the London School of Economics in London, the University of Kent in Canterbury, Oxford and Cambridge. Even as far as Victoria University in Melbourne, Australia.

You should note that some universities in the Netherlands require you to follow a pre-masters course after graduating from THUAS. There are exceptions, such as Maastricht University, but students will have to complete an entry test first.
