About the education

The one-year Master programme in European Economic Law (EEL) at Stockholm University is an internationally renowned advanced legal degree programme with a twenty-year long history and a large community of alumni, many of them having prominent positions at European institutions, academic centres and law firms. The programme opens with a mandatory course in Advanced European Economic Law (15 ECTS). Thereafter students have the opportunity to specialize in one of three cutting-edge areas of EEL (15 ECTS each): EU Competition Law, EU Banking and Financial Law, and the Internal Market and its Social Dimension. During the second term students take a course in Methods in Research and Practice (15 ECTS), where they develop skills in applying European legal methods through participating in a EU Moot Court and through interactive seminars and research workshops. The programme concludes with a master thesis on a selected topic of EEL (15 ECTS). The teaching staff includes former judges and present members of the EU Court, as well as reputed academics and practitioners in the field. The programme is a full-time course of study and requires active participation.
