The Law School

Montesquieu Learning Centre

Montesquieu Learning Centre

It has a consistently high ranking in national reviews on legal education and in peer reviews (students and staff), and are particularly commended for the quality of staff, the structure, variety, and depth of programs, the informal classroom setting, and the quality of support facilities (ICT, counselling, university campus).

The Program

Tilburg Law School

Tilburg Law School

Tilburg Law School offers six English taught master's programs.

LLM International Business Law
One-year program, starts every year in the end of August

The program aims to provide students with a better knowledge and understanding of key subjects such as business law, commercial law, competition law and economic regulation. The emphasis lies on an integrated knowledge of the various fields of law and levels of jurisdiction, together with neighboring academic disciplines, especially economics.
Furthermore, it provides students with the opportunity to sharpen their skills in research, argumentation, communication, analysis, and teamwork. It also takes the student forward, developing the practical application of academic knowledge in the real world, where they are expected to be aware of the broader social and economic context, to take a critical distance from the law, and to assume responsibility.

LLM International and European Law
One-year program, starts every year in the end of August and in the end of January

International and European law are exerting an increasing influence on the contents of national legal systems in substantive as well as procedural matters.

The programme offers two specialisations:
- International and Human Rights Law
- European Union Law

The International and Human Rights Law specialisation focuses on the contemporaneous core issues in the field of international and human rights law. The program includes ample attention for development within international organisations such as the United Nations and the Council of Europe and within such legal supervisory bodies as the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court.

The European Union, with its supranational powers, interacts directly with the legal systems of its Member States. In addition, the EU plays an increasing role at international level leasing to obligations for its Member States. In this sense, the European Union Law specialisation offers an appealing study of not only the functioning of the EU and its decision-making process, but of its implications at both national and international level as well. Students will thus have the chance to analyse the European integration process from a broad perspective, looking beyond its purely legal aspects.

LLM Law and Technology
One-year program, starts every year in the end of August and in the end of January

Emerging new technologies are pervasively transforming society. European Union leaders have repeatedly stated that Europe must become a dynamic, knowledge-based economy. Various national governments have put forward their visions for future knowledge and information management. Also in respect of biotechnology and nanotechnology national as well as international (non) governmental organizations have published policy documents, opinions and statements regarding the regulation of these technologies and the way in which society should deal with the influence these technologies have upon our day to day life. These initiatives are driven by the development and application of (new) technologies. They are witness to the need for a careful assessment of the mutual shaping of technology and society. Research and development, as well as the introduction of new technologies into the market and into society as a whole, evoke all kinds of social and legal questions. The master’s programme of Law and Technology provides the cutting-edge, multidisciplinary knowledge on technology, law, and society needed for answering these questions.

LLM Research Master in Law
One-year program or two-year program, starts every year in the end of August

The Research Master in Law is a coproduction of Tilburg University and the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Belgium). The program is aimed at talented and motivated students wishing to become proficient in legal research by following a top-quality degree program. For students who have a Bachelor's degree or an undergraduate degree, the program lasts two years. In addition to obtaining a deep and comprehensive understanding of legal methods, students will also have the opportunity to specialize in one or more legal areas.
Besides the regular two-year Research Master's program, there is an abridged one-year program. This program is intended for students with a Master's degree or a graduate degree. This program focuses primarily on acquiring research skills. The Research Master's program is not only challenging but also very intensive. Every year, a maximum of 24 talented and motivated students with strong analytical skills and good academic record are admitted to the program.

LLM International Business Taxation, track International Business Tax Law
One-year program, starts every year in the end of August

In today's environment of largely globalizing national economies, multinational enterprises maintain a diversified range of cross-border economic relations. The diversity and complexity these cross-border relations raised numerous legal questions. Students who finish this program will have the knowledge and understanding of these legal questions from an international business taxation perspective. Furthermore they will be able to make judgements on possible ways of addressing problems and on the feasibility of solutions.

MSc Victimology and Criminal Jusitice
One-year program, starts every year in the end of August

The master in Victimology and Criminal Justice is a unique graduate program in the world that provides a comprehensive and rigorous teaching of victimology within the framework of criminal justice systems. This inherently interdisciplinary and international oriented program welcomes outstanding students with at least a bachelor's degree in Law, liberal arts or social sciences (criminology, psychology, political science, sociology, anthropology). Two introductory courses are designed to bridge the disciplinary gaps between students; depending on their undergraduate educational background.
