Universiteit Leiden Launches LL.M. in Global and European Labour Law

With the increasing globalization of the economy, workers’ rights have become a fractured subject across geographies

Labor laws are no longer confined to national barriers: it is now essential for every lawyer to understand the European and global frameworks. With that in mind, Universiteit Leiden of the Netherlands has launched an LL.M. in Global and European labor Law for 2019/20. 

The course, which Leiden believes is the first of its kind, aims to combine all the rules and mechanisms of international labor law, as well as for the various economic, social, political and cultural contexts. 

With the increasing globalization of the economy, workers’ rights have become a fractured subject across geographies. Most companies in most countries now have to comply with corporate social responsibility standards. 

And new frameworks for labor rights have come into force, including conventions put it place by the International Labor Organization (ILO), directives of the European Union, plus human rights treaties and the guiding principles of the OECD club of mostly-rich economies and the United Nations. 

Students on the Leiden LL.M. are expected to be from all continents, providing a global experience, and guest lectures from the ILO, EU, UN and OECD are mooted to take part in the program. 

Applications for the course are now open for legal professionals with a full law degree and basic knowledge of labor or European law.
