EU Law LLM


EU-Mgal

Hello! I've been checking this website for a while, but I'm still unsure about some stuff.

I'm a Spanish student going through my second year of undergrad, and I'm very keen on European Law.

The thing is, I would need to get a Masters degree (Abogacía) after my LLB, which takes about 2 years. But I have the possibility of coursing an LLM right after undergrad. That wouldn't qualify me as a lawyer, so what I wanted to know is which job perspectives would I have "only" with an LLM in European Law?

Could I get experience working for EU institutions and/or companies? Or would I need to go back to Spain after and become qualified as a lawyer? Wouldn't that be a waste of time since I'd have to focus a lot on national law again right after a year abroad?

I'd really appreciate some advices.

PD: I am very keen on studying at Maastricht or Tilburg, they've got awesome LLM degrees.

Hi,

You can do any number of things with a LLM in European law, working at the EU institutions being one of them. I recommend checking out job sites such as Eurobrussels if you want examples. However, if you want to work as a lawyer in Spain, you probably need a Spanish law degree.

Keep in mind though that jobs with the European institutions are very competitive. There are some things that could give you a competitive edge, such as speaking different languages and work experience.

Considering the universities you mentioned, I think Maastricht is superior for European law and Tilburg for international law.
