The world is changing fast. Deals between companies from all over the world are made every hour of every day. Governmental institutions are increasingly confronted with the influence of international jurisdictions and rules. This requires lawyers who are able to deal with the range of legal implications that arise.

As a Global Law student, you will view legal cases form a completely new perspective: the program combines insights from multiple legal systems rather than studying law by reference to one national law only. In each subject, the global, rather than the local point of view is assumed. This will provide you with the tools you need in order to work in the legal department of a business, work with professionals from different disciplines, and lead and advise teams. With the Bachelor's program in Global Law, you will be fully prepared for a key position in this international environment.

If you have a previous Bachelor's degree in a different field, such as, for example, economics, sociology, or liberal arts, you may be exempted from courses offered in the first year. In this way, you can obtain your degree in two years' time rather than three.

In the first year of Global Law, you are introduced to law and additionally, become familiar with other non-legal fields. This will provide you with a broad basis that will sustain you throughout your career: you will be able to communicate effectively with experts from different disciplines. We aim to train lawyers who are able to transcend borders and view legal cases with an open mind and a transnational perspective. In Global Law, you will become a lawyer of the future!
study abroad
It is possible to make use of one of the many exchange partners to enrich your experience, but it is not a mandatory component of the program. There is currently no other university that offers courses which could substitute courses available in the Global law program, and as such an exchange program would be possible if you postpone your graduation date.

WO propedeuseWhen you want to apply to the LLB Global Law with a WO-propedeuse certificate, you will need to meet the same requirements that a high school entrant has to meet: you will need to be in the top 30% of your class. This translates to a 7 average on your grade list.

All students who apply to be admitted to the Global Law program will go through an application procedure. Part of this procedure is an interview, which serves as a way to get to know you and your goals and expectations. The interview helps us to determine whether you are fit for the Global Law program, and serves as a way for you to figure out whether it's the right fit as well.


We ask all applicants to write us a motivation letter. In this letter we want you to tell us about your plans for the future. We are also keen to find out what you will contribute to the program and to your fellow students. Lastly, we ask you to give a brief example of an issue or a question you expect to better understand by following the program.

Studie in cijfers

In deze tabel staan resultaten van deze studie in cijfers uitgedrukt. Hiermee kan je vergelijken hoe deze opleiding het doet in vergelijking met dezelfde opleiding bij andere onderwijsinstellingen.

Vanwege het lage aantal Nederlandse studenten zijn geen doorstroomcijfers beschikbaar. Diploma in 4 jaar betreft studenten die in 2010 startten met Internationaal & Europees Recht (nu track binnen Rechtsgeleerdheid). Dit betreft dus geen Global Law.

Na de studie

Unsplashed background img 2
After graduation, most students will continue with an LLM degree. In general, two prominent career paths can be distinguished: the first one is the path towards traditional legal professions. There are options to gain access to the traditional legal professions (barrister, attorney) in England and Wales, and to obtain the civil effect in the Netherlands. The second one is the path towards becoming a lawyer in an organization or company.

Beroepsperspectief / arbeidsmarkt

With your Bachelor of Laws, you have a range of different career options in the legal field. As a graduate of Global Law, you can apply directly for positions in global businesses, governments, NGOs and other large organizations. On top of the core of the program, you will have several add-on options for accessing legal practice in the Netherlands. Of course, you can apply for many prestigious Master's programs all over the world.
Businesses are increasingly shifting their focus abroad. But what are the implications of all these changes for the legal arena?

This world demands legal professionals who are able to deal with new paradigms. When you graduate from Global Law, you will be trained to deal with the legal questions a company may ask. You will be able to work in large interdisciplinary teams, combining your own knowledge with the knowledge of others, and as such reaching solutions for legal questions. Because of the international approach to each subject, you are trained to work in international organizations within and outside of the Netherlands.
