European Law is a subfield of International Law that concentrates on one of the largest and most powerful international organisations in the world – the European Union. The EU has jurisdiction over a wide variety of domestic and foreign activities of its member states – particularly with regard to trade, environmental standards, and human rights – and so studying EU law provides access to a diverse range of different areas of legal practice. European Law Masters (usually an LLM) is valued by a wide variety of different international law firms and European institutions. It also lends itself to working for commercial entities with extensive operations in European countries. As with all LLMs, a Masters in European Law requires an extensive grounding in legal study, and so most courses require a professional qualification in Law.
