This degree aims to enable students to specialise in subjects related to European Law and will provide you with comprehensive knowledge of Council of Europe and European Union policy, legislative and decision making processes, with a thematic focus on human rights, good governance, democracy and the rule of law. Students will deepen and broaden their knowledge of law as an academic subject; acquiring a systematic understanding of legal processes, methods and concepts, of the social and political context in which legal processes take place, and of appropriate theoretical conceptions of law. Ultimately, by maximising your academic potential and refining your problem-solving skills in a transnational context through the acquisition of a systematic and critical understanding of complex issues that will enhance their professional development and horizons. The research and writing skills you gain will be transferable to a variety of professional sectors, including the legal profession, policymaking, corporate sector, governmental bodies or academia. Students will gain knowledge and understanding through a stimulating combination of lectures, seminars, workshops, professional internships and self-directed studies and use a variety of resources, including audio-visual media, library books and e-learning materials. Lectures, seminars and presentations are used to communicate core information, develop themes and ideas, and seek to encourage student participation through interactive exercises and opportunities for peer and self-assessment. Students will also be required to engage in intensive programmes of structured reading and research, and to present their findings orally and in writing. The programme is particularly attractive for students who seek employment opportunities in European Union and Council of Europe's institutions and agencies in Brussels, Strasbourg and elsewhere. It also expands career choices for law graduates or legal practitioners, and is of direct relevance for anyone wishing to gain advanced specialist knowledge of European law in order to work for national, European or international governmental or non-governmental bodies.
