It is generally accepted that in today’s globalized world there is no such thing as a purely national private law. Legal practitioners, judges, national and European institutions, as well as public and private entities, are increasingly confronted with rules and doctrines of International and European origin. In this environment, the LL.M. Programme in International and European Legal Studies offers an advanced and in-depth study in the European and international aspects of private law, as well as the economic, social and political factors that drive its development. 

The LLM in International and European Legal Studies at the Athens Law School consists of two separate LLM Courses:

a) The specialised LL.M. course Private Law and Business Transactions offers students a wide variety of intensive modules which cover the whole range of modern private transactions, with a particular focus on their international and mainly European dimension.

b) The LLM course European Private Law consists of a variety of core and optional modules which cover the most important contemporary issues in the field of private law, having regard in particualar to the developments of EU legislation and case law.

This Programme seeks to provide students with a solid doctrinal and practical background which shall allow them to successfully cope with the ever-demanding academic environment, while developing their careers at the highest level of national and international practice.
