Study Programme

The programme is composed of:

  • 6 compulsory courses
  • 3 specialised seminars
  • 2 interdisciplinary courses (one "general", one "special")
  • Optional compact seminars

The core curriculum is composed of six compulsory courses. In the first term, all students attend the compulsory course on the 'Internal Market and the EU Citizenship Law' and choose between the compulsory course on 'Institutions de l'UE' and 'Droit constitutionnel de l'UE' depending on their prior studies. In the second term, the choice of compulsory course is between 'The External Relations of the EU' and 'Droit de la concurrence, secteur public'. Moreover, each student follows a compulsory course on 'Judicial Remedies' and on 'Competition Law' which are simultaneously taught in French and English. The choice of both the course in EU Litigation and EU Competition Law and of the seminars takes place using a course/seminar allocation. Students indicate a list of preferences/priorities; the final allocation of courses and seminars is done by the department in function of the students’ priorities, the respect of the language rule and the maximum class size to maintain the interactive character of the course.

All students have to participate in the Legal Methodology course on "Case Law" and "Writing Skills".

Each student attends three seminars and will have the possibility to attend a number of specialised compact seminars throughout the academic year.

They will have to present an original Master’s Thesis relating to one of the courses, seminars or compact seminars chosen.

Moreover, each student of the Law department will participate in the programme of European General Studies programme by choosing two courses in this department.

The individual curriculum will be subject to the language rule.



The study programmes are revised annually to ensure continuing excellence and dynamism.
