LLM or MSc in European and International Tax Law

General

Program Description

Trade conditions and taxes are at the heart of many business decisions. In a world where trade is global, knowledge of only domestic rules is inadequate. With our Master's in European and International Trade and Tax Law you will be able to help businesses and institutions operate in a worldwide context with the European Union's legal framework in focus.

The Master’s in European and International Trade and Tax Law builds on previous studies in law, management and/or economics.

The programme provides an in-depth understanding of both the practical and theoretical aspects of trade and tax law within the EU as well as globally. Important law- and policymakers in these fields are, among others, the European union (EU), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the World Trade Organization (WTO).

International trade evolves rapidly. Those interested in doing business within the EU and globally must know the rules governing their business-operations. Contemporary international trade law involves multiple fields of law, which affect all aspects of business. Firms and institutions must constantly be prepared to adapt to new challenges. For example, climate considerations and other issues of sustainability transform the business environment globally. In addition, digitalization, artificial intelligence and automation create new legal issues for businesses and legislatures.

The programme provides you with access to an international faculty with state-of-the-art knowledge in the field and experience from working with the courts and institutions of the European Union and in private practice. We offer you a unique combination of specialist courses with special focus on EU law. The courses are designed to meet the demands of the market for cutting-edge knowledge on multi-jurisdictional legal issues.

Due to our close connections with the business community our courses feature guest lectures by highly specialised professionals providing you with practical and theoretical insights on European and International trade and tax law issues. In the specialization in tax law you will meet with tax practitioners working with these issues from, for example, EY and Deloitte.

One programme – two tracks

When applying to this programme, you elect either the European and international trade law track or the European and international tax law track. The first track leads to a Master’s degree in European and international trade law and modules are possible to combine across the areas. The second track leads to a Master’s degree in European and international tax law.

Career opportunities

The EU and international law methods and the knowledge and skills taught in the programme are a necessity for consultants, legal advisors, judges and civil servants involved in international business and transactions, as well as for business decision-makers. The programme is suited for employment within private practice, national and EU institutions, international organisations and legal research.
