Master of Laws (LL.M.) (60 credits) in European Economic Law
The one-year master programme in European Economic Law (EEL) is an internationally renowned legal degree with a twenty-year history and a large community of alumni, many of them having prominent positions at European institutions, academic centres and law firms.
The principal object of study in the Master programme in European Economic Law is the legal system of the European Union, approached from an Internal Market perspective. Apart from advanced level knowledge in substantive European economic law, the education gives students a theoretical and methodological foundation for further independent research, development and other qualified
work within this area of law.

The courses are taught by leading professors and researchers at Stockholm University, by internationally renowned guest professors, judges and advocate generals from the European Court of Justice, as well as leading Swedish practitioners. Our objective is to enhance your ability to analyse, solve problems and think independently; qualities that are required in advanced international careers. To achieve this objective, we employ a rich variety of teaching methods, in which active student participation is the key.
