Program description

The programme is aimed at students wishing to become proficient in legal research and forms an excellent basis for a reseach position within government, business or international organisations

The Research Master in Law is aimed at talented students wishing to become proficient in legal research by following a top-quality degree programme. In addition to the regular two- year Research Master's programme there is an abridged one-year programme. To the fields of research, students also have the opportunity to specialise in one or more legal areas. The abridged one-year programme is intended for students with a Master's degree: this programme focuses primarily on acquiring research skills. The programme has five types of courses, whose objective it is to train students in the following research skills: social and intellectual skills, enabling students to function in research groups at national and international levels; skills enabling students to conduct independent and critical academic research; skills and methods for developing legal knowledge. This programme is an excellent basis for a job as researcher, either with the government, in private business, or with international organisations. In addition, the Faculty of Law provides a number of students with the opportunity to write a dissertation after their MPhil.
