The LL.M. is an advanced graduate programme 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 programme 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.
The programme also provides flexibility to students offering a choice of an optional course from amongst the extraordinary rich course offerings at the ULB. Students write their LL.M. thesis on a topic of international business law of their own choosing, with the assistance and guidance of the LL.M. teaching staff.
A Full-Time Programme
The LL.M. is a full-time programme which runs from the last Monday in September to the end of June. The courses are divided into two terms, with exams held in January and June. The students are also entitled to a resit session of exams held in late June.
