Leiden Law & Digital Technologie LLM


Hello, everyone!
I've been recently admitted in the Advanced Master of Law and Digital Technologies at Leiden University, but before accepting it, I would like some extra feedback about the programme, if anyone could help! Some of my main concerns:

1. Is the course well recognized in other EU/UK institutions? I've heard Tilburg and UvA are more "acknowledged" in this field, but I was hoping that LU was not lacking behind, given its tradition in Law school in general.

2. Considering i've been offered a scholarship, would it be too risky to withdrawn from it to apply for UvA next intake? The thing is, in order to study in the UvA I would definitely need an AES/AMS scholarship, since I would not be able to maintain my studies without one of those.

Thanks for the attention!

Hello, Moraest!

My name is Atanas Yordanov and I am the class representative of the 2016/2017 class in Law and Digital Technologies in Leiden University.

I offer you my personal point of view on the questions you ask.

On your first question: When I was doing my research for an LLM I wanted a program, which was non-traditional for lawyers and interdisciplinary with technology. With English, I found three main candidates - Leiden, Tilburg and Edinburgh. I chose Leiden, because it generally scored more then Tilburg and it is traditionally the best for law in the Netherlands, although the program in Tilburg is state subsidized and, therefore would have been much cheaper. Edinburgh I did not like because their program was unclear and I had no real idea of what they are teaching. They have good ratings though and were a bit more expensive then Leiden. In general, the program is good and, if you haven't practiced in this specific area you will probably learn a lot of new things. There are bits here and there, which could be improved of course, but I do not regret enrolling in Leiden.

On your second question: frankly, I have no idea. You should be able to ask the Universities about such details. I recommend you do that.

I hope this was at least a bit helpful. :)
