LLM in Netherlands


rheamatta
I am a student pursuing my BA.LLB from Delhi, India
I am interested in International Trade Law and International Taxation and saw good programmes in Netherlands for the same. I wanted to ask, if I want to look for a job in Netherlands can i do that? what is the criteria of practising law there? or if I'm not pursuing a dutch law degree and still want to join something there(after an undergrad from india and post grad from netherlands) for settling there, is that possible?

Hi rheamatta. Yes, the Netherlands has some excellent programmes in international tax law (our uni does not have one though). Regarding working in the Netherlands after your studies, as a non-EU citizen your prospects will highly depend on your skill set and the opportunities available when you graduate (these can fluctuate). There are many international companies and institutions with offices in the country, so there are indeed job prospects for internationals, yet since you are non-EU a further work/residence permit would be based on employment. This means there has to be an employer willing to make an offer that fits the requirements aligned with a work visa (min salary etc.). In sum, it is possible but do expect the process may be more arduous if non-EU. If you plan to stay longer after your studies, it always helps to learn Dutch during them as this may open more doors in the future :) Good luck with your study pursuits.
