About Master of Law at KU Leuven

The law faculties of the University of Leuven (KU Leuven) and the University of Zurich offer a double degree programme which is fully taught in English. The two-year master's programme incorporates one year of study in Leuven and another in Zurich.

What is the programme all about?

Students of the Master of Law programme gain experience at two different universities, each with their own expertise. In this two-year master programme you will study in Leuven, Belgium and a second one in Zurich, Switzerland. The programme focuses on each institution's individual strengths: International and European Law in Leuven and Arbitration Law, Financial Law and Human Rights Law in Zurich. Switzerland enjoys a world-class reputation as a centre of arbitration and banking, and many international institutions are based there in Geneva, just as they are in Brussels, some 30km from Leuven.

Upon completion of the programme, students receive a double degree - one from KU Leuven and another from the University of Zurich. A double degree from two leading law faculties in Europe will be of enormous added value for your future professional career in the world of business and/or international law.

Each partner university will select fifteen students to participate in the programme.
