At Ghent University we firmly believe that there is much more to legal education than knowing the black letter law. We want our LLM students to become the skilled all-round professionals needed in today’s complex and international economy. So our LLM programme integrates a set of legal skills into its core curriculum. We start off with your English language skills and then move on to presentation, negotiation and arbitration skills. We realise how important research and writing are and, therefore, put great emphasis on your LLM research paper. You will be guided and counselled throughout a year-long trajectory that ends in a high-end legal paper. You will leave us a better lawyer and a consummate professional.
