The LL.M. Programme offers two specializations: one leads to an LL.M. in International Law and the other to an LL.M. in European Union Law. Prospective students must choose which specialization they may wish to follow. The structure of the two strands is similar, developing into core modules and optional modules. Students of one specialization may choose optional modules offered under the other. In addition, they also have access to a certain number of courses offered in Greek.

Your eligibility:

To be eligible for admission, prospective students must hold a Degree in Law. The Steering Committee may also accept a Degree in a field other than Law, provided that at least some of the course taught are related to the LL.M. Programme.


Language proficiency requirements

Prospective students must provide proof of at least a C1 level certificate of the English language. The proficiency must be demonstrated by means of an internationally recognized test (corresponding to C1 level).

Candidates who do not possess a title which proves their competence in one of the previous languages can instead sit a placement examination which will be conducted by one of our academic staff, based on a legal text. For that reason, interested candidates should indicate in their application the language they wish to be examined on.


Admission criteria

The Admissions Committee will assess each application, based on the following criteria and adhering to our equal opportunities policy:

  1. The grade point average (G.P.A.) of Degree in Law or a relevant subject, as demonstrated by a full academic transcript of records.
  2. The grade point average (G.P.A.) of a postgraduate Degree in Law or a relevant subject, as demonstrated by a full transcript of records (if any)
  3. The applicant’s curriculum vitae (in English).
  4. The applicant’s proficiency in the English language. If English is not the applicant’s first language, proficiency must be demonstrated by means of an internationally recognized test (corresponding to C1 level) or a University Degree taught entirely in English.
  5. The applicant’s skills in the French language, as evidenced by the respective language certificates (if any).
  6. Personal interview with an admissions representative, which will take place by electronic means during the first two weeks of September. Only candidates who meet the admission requirements will be invited to interview.

Only for candidates who have completed their undergraduate studies at a non-Greek University:

Please note that graduates from non-Greek universities would also need to submit a certified copy of their degree accreditation by the Hellenic National Academic Recognition Information Center (Hellenic NARIC or DOATAP), or at least a certified copy of the submitted application to the Hellenic NARIC for the issuance of said accreditation (only for candidates who have completed their undergraduate studies at a non-Greek University). Further information about the accreditation procedure can be found here.

Περιγραφή

Our new LL.M. in International and European Law, taught entirely in English, builds on the very successful LL.M. programme we have created in the Athens Law School in the past ten years. It is an intensive Master’s programme, which provides students with an in-depth understanding of International and European Union Law in both their theoritical and practical aspects.

The Programme covers a single academic year, in the course of which students must successfully complete two semesters of core, mandatory taught modules while conducting research, under the supervision of our Faculty, leading to an original item of written work in the form of a dissertation.

For the successful completion of the Programme students must obtain 75 ECTS. The taught part of the LL.M. Programme is divided into two semesters – winter and spring. In each semester, students are offered two core and many optional modules. They must attend two core (10 ECTS for the module and 5 ECTS for the obligatory seminar) and three optional modules in each semester (5 ECTS per module), chosen from a list of modules which cover the most important legal issues in their specialization.

The remaining credits (15 ECTS) are covered by the successful submission of the LL.M. dissertation, on a subject of the student’s choice, often related to one or more of the modules taught, supervised by an academic staff member. Students choose the subject of their thesis during the first or second semester of their studies, upon consultation with their academic supervisor. The dissertation must be written by each student individually and must be the result of their original scientific research. It is written in English. Students will present their research before a 3-member academic panel, who will grade the dissertation.

The LL.M. course starts on 1st October and lasts until the mid-June. The written or oral examinations take place in February and June, upon completion of each semester. Students may re-sit a failed examination in September following the end of the academic year. The Master thesis shall be submitted by 30 September of the year during which the spring semester takes place.
