Programme structure

The programme consists of a major in Law worth 150 credits. The major contains three different categories of courses in terms of course content : a number of courses in the Humanities (Philosophy, Economics, History, Sociology, Psychology) ; courses in foreign languages ( a choice of two languages from among Dutch, English, German or Spanish), and legal terminology (in Dutch, English or German) and thirdly, courses in Law, namely two courses on Theoretical and Critical Reflection in Law and several courses in legal subjects (essentially Belgian and European Law). Apart from the language courses, which have their own special methodology, almost all of the sessions include a progressive combination of practical exercises, tutorials and supervised pieces of work.
The first year comprises courses in the Humanities, two language courses and three courses in Law (Sources, Principles and Methods, Roman ; Foundations in Law ; and Legal History). The opening of the 1st quadrimester to subjects other than those related to law, takes the form of three courses in the Humanities (Philosophy, History and Economics). Other subjects included in the Humanities feature on the programme in the following years (Sociology, Psychology, etc.).
