Since the European Union continues to evolve; in past years, its role has already evolved from a simple trade union to a political entity along-side the member states. National law in EU member states becomes more and more intertwined with European law, as EU legislation continues to harmonise and standardise various fields of the law, all under the enquiring eye of the European Court of Justice. At the same time, the EU acts as a counterbalance both politically and economically towards the global superpowers China, Russia and the United States of America. In order to master this important position in the future, educated and specifically trained lawyers are required. This is where the new LL.M. programme comes in: it prepares you for top-ranking employment in the legal field in the European Union or indeed globally.
