Should social networks offering free services such as Facebook be subject to intervention by competition authorities? Can Member States’ measures combatting climate change be tolerated under EU state aid rules? Questions like these will be discussed during the Master’s track European Competition Law and Regulation.
Global challenges such as fast technological changes, climate change and societal transformation disrupt existing market structures and business models. They challenge our current understanding of how markets work. As businesses adjust their practices to the changing market environment, the boundaries of the law and existing models of regulation are greatly influenced.

You will learn to analyze and reflect on these issues.
The experiential learning method of the Amsterdam Law Practice will inspire you to do research and increase your knowledge. You can take part in EU law negotiation exercises as well as in the European Competition Law Moot Court and European Law Moot Court. This will create the opportunity to establish contacts in the professional field, a very valuable prelude to a successful legal career.
