The world is changing fast. Businesses are shifting their horizons and going abroad more and more. Many companies relocate their supply chains, businesses expand to foreign markets or try their hand at the stock market. But what are the implications of all these changes for the legal arena?
Global Law provides a new point of view when it comes to law: it puts "global" before "local" . Global Law goes beyond the limits of one jurisdictional system and allows you to integrate knowledge from different research fields when you tackle an assignment. These skills are essential when you work in an organisation where legal cases can involve a range of different jurisdictions, perspectives and solutions.
The Bachelor Global law offers a unique learning experience. In this programme you will work together with your classmates from all around the world, receive instruction from excellent researchers and teachers and develop your ability to conduct scientific research. The interdisciplinary programme gives you insight into different research fields. When you finish, you will have the unique skills of a global lawyer, demanded in a globalising world!
