Study programme

This programme follows a coherent set of strongly interrelated courses. They prepare you for legal service in European and international private practice or corporate entities, as well as in any EU institution and in the public administration of Member States dealing with economic regulation.

Programme structure

This track allows students to specialize in competition law as well as to study the broader regulatory framework applicable to European economic activities in fast-moving and progressively digitalised markets. You can combine the study of broader legal and theoretical perspectives on EU competition law and market regulation with its practical application. The programme offers students also a wide range of extra-curriculum activities.

The quality of the programme is enriched by UvA’s close academic partnership with the Amsterdam Centre for Law & Economics (ACLE) and the Amsterdam Centre for European Law and Governance (ACELG).
