The programme is a specialised graduate programme designed to study labour law in its broadest sense. It is unique in its sort and a response to the great demand for specialised labour laywers.
The approach is both international (EU Law, ILO) and multi-national: the goal of the programme is to go beyond the national approach that is common to most juridical curricula. This goal is achieved by giving students the opportunity to study, compare and discuss the various national approaches to labour law that exist in the world, especially in Europe. The programme is exceptionally well suited for (future) lawyers, policy makers, employee representatives (e.g. in European Work Councils) who aspire to be or already are professionally active in the field of (international) labour law. Labour Law specialists with a broader, legal view are- and have always been- in great demand.
