The LL.M. Programme in International and European Legal Studies ( is the first one-year graduate programme taught entirely in English at the Athens Law School. It is an intensive master’s Programme which provides its students with an in-depth understanding and a hands-on knowledge of both European Private Law as well as Private Law & Business Transactions. Our students will benefit from the strong network and various activities of the European Law School and its participating Universities, comprising of the Humboldt Universität in Berlin, King’s College, La Sapienza University in Rome, the University of Amsterdam, the Universidade Católica Portuguesa in Lisbon, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and Université Paris Panthéon Assas (

The LL.M. programme consists of two separate LLM Courses:

a) European Private Law

b) Private Law & Business Transactions

The European Private Law course provides an advanced and comprehensive study in the most important contemporary private law issues. Our approach to teaching and assessment seeks to provide students with a strong background in core subjects, while also preparing them for ‘real world’ scenarios related to this field.

In the Private Law and Business Transactions course, students will be offered a wide variety of intensive modules which cover the whole range of modern private transactions, with a particular focus on the developments of EU legislation and case law. It seeks to provide students with a solid doctrinal and practical background which would allow them to successfully cope with the ever-demanding academic and professional environment, while developing their careers at the highest level of national and international practice.

In order to obtain the LL.M. degree, students must successfully complete two semesters and write a dissertation in a field of their choice, under the supervision of our academic staff.

Applications for the academic year 2023-2024 will take place between 5 May 2023 until 9 June 2023.
