Jean Monnet Modules
In 2012, the European Commission recognised the efforts and focus on EU law and legal developments within the EU legal order of the Master’s programme in European Business Law and thereby awarded the Law School with several so-called Jean Monnet Modules. These include 'EU Law Evening Lectures' to which distinguished EU lawyers are invited to discuss their particular area of expertise, and the legal challenges and problems therein. Also, the course in EU Environmental Law falls within the umbrella of Jean Monnet Modules.

The Master’s Programme in European Business Law is an academic programme in English and open to Swedish and foreign students with at least a three year degree in Law (Bachelor, LL.B, or equivalent).

The students have the possibility to conclude the studies after one year and obtain a degree of Master (One Year) of Laws in European Business Law – Magisterexamen i Europeisk handelsrätt.


The Master provides an in-depth understanding of both the practical and the theoretical aspects of business law within the European Union and of how the Internal Market operates in a global context.
