The Master of Law and Economics was established in response to growing demands from international employers for multidisciplinary experts in competition, regulatory issues, and governance.

Utrecht University's Master of Law and Economics was established in response to growing demands from international employers for multidisciplinary experts in competition, regulatory issues and governance. In the Master's programme in Law and Economics, you will focus on the economic and legal aspects of market regulation (in banking, energy, telecom, transport, health care, etc.), private equity, hedge funds, competition and competition policy, corporate governance and mergers. You will learn from an interdisciplinary team of legal experts and economists who enhance the challenging course content with both theory and real-world knowledge. The interdependence of economics and law is the prime focus of the programme.
The programme has been organised in such way that students entering with a Bachelor of Law will be proceeding to an LLM degree, and students entering with a bachelor of economics (or business and economics) will be proceeding towards an MSc degree. As a consequence, the programme offers two tracks: one leading to an LLM and the other to an MSc.
