Law and Economics at Utrecht University

In the Master’s programme in Law and Economics, you will focus on the economic and legal aspects of market regulation (in banking, energy, telecom, transport, health care, etc.), private equity, hedge funds, competition and competition policy, corporate governance and mergers. You will learn from an interdisciplinary team of legal experts and economists who enhance the challenging course content with both theory and real-world knowledge. The interdependence of economics and law is the prime focus of the programme. As a graduate of this programme, you will be uniquely prepared to bridge what is a common gap between these disciplines.
Growing demand for multidisciplinary experts
Utrecht University’s Master of Law and Economics was established in response to growing demands from international employers for multidisciplinary experts in competition, regulatory issues and governance. In the programme, you will examine legal and managerial issues as well as the underlying economic theories behind such cases as:
 

  • The European Commission’s imposition of a €1.47 billion fine on Philips for operating a cathode ray tube cartel.
  • UPS’s withdrawal from a €5.16 billion deal with TNT Express after European regulators moved to block the acquisition.
  • The European Commission’s investigation into the proposed acquisition of Dutch cable operator Ziggo by US-based Liberty Global.
  • The adequacy of governance codes in addressing Rhineland vs. shareholder economies in the area of executive pay, amongst other things.
  • The demise and subsequent bailouts of international banks by governments attempting to prevent financial system collapse.
  • The relocation of financial headquarters, or the use of transfer prices, to avoid paying taxes, as was recently revealed by firms like Google, Starbucks, and the Rolling Stones.

Why in Utrecht?

The innovative, multidisciplinary Master of Law and Economics programme combines the exciting and rapidly growing fields of competition, market law and regulation. The degree programme is a joint offering by two of Utrecht University’s most prestigious schools: the School of Economics and the School of Law.

Small scale and supportive
Each year, about 30 students enter this programme, giving it a small-scale feel. The mix of students from the Netherlands and abroad gives the programme a unique international environment that is ideal for developing an understanding of the perspectives and practices of other countries. The small scale of the programme encourages active participation during discussions in seminars and tutorials. In addition, alumni keep in touch with each other and with new students through a supportive international network; the student association of the Law and Economics programme actively pursues the development of these connections. Throughout your studies, you will work closely with the lecturers and have the opportunity to work on research projects with them, learning directly from leading experts in both fields.

Pursue your own research interests
The small-scale environment and the lecturers’ active involvement in your personal development will provide you with the ability to pursue your own research interests. In many courses, writing a research paper or an essay is mandatory; most often, you will have the opportunity to choose a specific subject for your papers. The professors who contribute to this Master’s programme have a strong link with the strategic research theme of Utrecht University: “Institutions of an Open Society”. As a student in this programme, you will be able to immerse yourself in their latest research and easily find subject matter for your LLM or MSc thesis work. Together with the research for your final thesis, this provides you with the opportunity to find your own voice and develop a personal portfolio of research work.

Partners
The faculty's liaisons with preferred partners from the law and business communities in the Netherlands allow you to develop an excellent professional network while still a student. Professors involved in the programme have extensive professional networks, experience outside academia and ties with government and market institutions, which provides you with the opportunity to broaden your academic and professional options.

Utrecht University in the rankings
As a student at Utrecht University, you will be studying at one of the world's top universities. The Shanghai Ranking 2015 places Utrecht University as the top university in the Netherlands, 17th in Europe, and 56th in the world. Moreover, Utrecht University works closely with over 80 leading international universities and is a member of the League of European Research Universities (LERU). The LERU is an association of 22 leading, like-minded European research institutes, collaborating to influence European policy on research, education and innovation. More information about Utrecht University.
 
Guest lecturers and extracurricular activities
In many courses, experienced practitioners from the legal and economics professions will present guest lectures, giving additional real-world perspectives on the interplay between practice and theory. These guest lecturers, as well as visits to key institutions and law firms, will help you connect with a network of professionals interested in your career opportunities.

Extracurricular opportunities

The Master in Law and Economics has its own student association: the Law and Economics Student Committee (LEC). This student association is actively involved in organising extracurricular activities, networking activities involving alumni of the programme, and outreach activities. Board members of the LEC are students of the current programme who are in close contact with the Programme Director, and lecturers. The LEC also plays an important role as a sounding board on the programme’s curriculum design and monitoring of quality.

Individual challenges
Students of the programme have been successful in submitting their research papers written for one of the courses in the programme, or presenting the paper at international research conferences. Students are also encouraged to work on research that is publishable in research journals. Some students are actively involved in international committees and organisations, such as AEGEE, TEIMUN and the European Moot Court competition.

Young Innovators
Are you curious, entrepreneurial, intellectually versatile, socially responsible? Do you want to get more out of your Master's programme, and learn to work across disciplinary boundaries to both research and actively (co-)create innovative initiatives that will make the world a little bit better? Then the Young Innovators honours programme (15 EC) might be of interest to you!

The programme will focus on exploring and designing innovations in three areas:

  • Sustainable innovations in health
  • Sustainable innovations in the economy
  • Sustainable innovations in urban living

Utrecht University Business Course
Are you inspired and energised by solving complex problems? Do you want to develop your business skills and to experience what it is like to be an entrepreneur? Then the extracurricular Utrecht University Business Course (UUBC) is the honours programme for you! The course is aimed at Master’s students from all disciplines studying at Utrecht University.
