The LL.M. is an advanced graduate program which is designed to expand your legal knowledge and expertise in the fast-changing areas of international business law. The philosophy of the LL.M. is to offer a rigorous, coherent and comprehensive program that covers all the core subjects of international business law, with a strong emphasis on practical experience. Thanks to an outstanding teaching staff composed of top academics who also practice law in Brussels and abroad, we can give you the competitive edge to take your career to the next level.
