Summary

An in-depth knowledge and understanding of EU law is now more essential than ever for anyone considering a career in law, business, politics or policy within the UK, EU or beyond.

EU law is a complex and fascinating subject that weighs ever more heavily on policymaking in the UK, Europe and internationally. This programme is designed to equip you with the knowledge and understanding of European law required for any future legal career.

The world-leading scholars teaching on the LLM and the richness of the course offering are distinctive features of this programme. The European Law LLM in Edinburgh constitutes one of the best postgraduate taught choices for people interested in EU law. EU law remains particularly important for the UK too.

The UK’s decision to withdraw from the EU (Brexit) provided the opportunity for deep and creative rethinking of the future of European integration, of the EU’s relationship with the United Kingdom, and of the governance of the international scene at large. However, while we do address questions raised by Brexit as dimensions of EU law, we do not intend our programme to be driven by this theme – aiming instead to sustain Edinburgh University as an institution of choice for students who wish to study the law and institutions of the European Union in both breadth and depth.

At Edinburgh, we take an interdisciplinary approach. You will combine study of the law and legal systems of the EU with courses on both policy implications and applied economics. The involvement of legal practitioners and policymakers in our programme, as well as the high-profile lectures and activities hosted by the Europa Institute, will give you first-hand knowledge of what is happening in Europe right now.
