In deciding where to study in, many students gravitate to Europe's cultural and financial capitals: LL.M. programs can be found in cities such as Paris, Berlin, Geneva, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Zurich, Brussels, and more. Studying in a city like one of those puts law students in close proximity to important institutions such as the United Nations, the World Bank, and the European Council, not to mention a plethora of NGOs and governmental institutions. 

In terms of the LL.M. programs in Europe listed below, many of them are general programs, aimed at helping legal professionals develop additional skills that will help them in their careers. Many European law schools also offer specialized LL.M. programs, in areas such as finance, business law, human rights law, environmental law, tax law, and more, which can help students develop focus areas that they can put to use in their practice.

For those who graduate with a European LL.M. degree, the options are countless. Many choose to stay in Europe after graduation and work for law firms, NGOs, and other organizations. Other international students opt to go back to their home countries and apply their new legal knowledge back home.
