FAQ

  • What are the consequences of the corona situation for studying in 2021-2022?

    We understand that you may have concerns about how the corona pandemic will affect future studies. Our starting point is that in the academic year 2021-2022 we will be able to offer all teaching activities on campus without restrictions. We are eager to return to the campus, to face-to-face teaching and meeting up with each other. All degree seeking students (including international ones) are therefore expected to come to Amsterdam by the start of the academic year 2021-2022.

    Assuming we can teach on campus, we do not offer the option of following our education via distance learning. It goes without saying that we are dependent on the developments regarding the coronavirus and what the policies and rules of the Dutch government will be. If the situation calls for it, we should return to a scenario of (partially) online education. As soon as more information is available, we will post it on our website.

  • What will my career prospects be like?

    Thanks to our ‘in context’ teaching method, our graduates are problem-driven, curious lawyers who can easily adapt to various kinds of legal practice and fulfil a range of functions. Our graduates work in international law firms throughout the EU and beyond, but also act as compliance officers and in-house lawyers for banks and other larger companies. Others have taken on national and European government functions, joined adjudication bodies or embarked on academic careers.

  • What is the Amsterdam Law Practice?

    The Amsterdam Law School offers experiential education that is unique in the Netherlands. In experiential education, you learn by reflecting on who you are as a legal professional and how you want to contribute to society in the future. You apply your academic knowledge of the law and your learned skills by putting yourself in the shoes of a legal professional in real or simulated cases. In clinics, for example, you will work on real cases. In simulations or law labs you will work on simulated cases. 

    You will be taught by top lecturers from the field and will learn a lot from each other in a small group of motivated students. Within each Master's programme it is possible to take at least 6 ECTS of experiential learning and a maximum of 12 ECTS. 

  • Is there an Honour’s programme for Master’s students?

    Yes, if you are looking for more challenge and academic depth the Honours programme Academic Excellence track could be interesting for you. It is designed for excellent law students with evident research talent. The programme can be pursued in addition to all LLM programs (Dutch and English). You will receive advanced training in research methods and academic skills as well as gather first-hand research experience during a research internship at one of our research projects.
