The modern lawyer: not just the law, but finance and behavior as well

This Master's program delivers lawyers who know their way in the wider arena of the future. The law still is pivotal. Tort law, contract law, corporate law, regulatory law and insolvency law; the anatomy of these fields is explored in depth. But further perspectives are added. We will examine the legal side of corporate finance, but also delve into the underlying balance sheets and profit and loss accounts; we will examine the regulatory framework in which banks operate, but also question their role in society as a whole; we will examine the structure of contract law, but also focus on the psychology behind contract-negotiations and dispute resolution. In short, we offer a multidisciplinary master's program that both deepens our understanding of the law and fosters our knowledge of the fields with which the law interacts, such as finance, psychology and ethics.

This Master is formerly known as 'Corporate Law: Law Markets and Behavior'.

Waarom aan de Amsterdam VU?

Over the last decade, all of the Netherlands' top international firms have moved to an area called the 'Amsterdam Zuidas'. VU Amsterdam is located right at the heart of this area. The concentration of high-end legal activity within a five-minute walk of our faculty probably is unprecedented – a law faculty cannot have better neighbors. We have seized the opportunity with both hands. And it is not law firms exclusively: leading banks, insurers and regulators have joined us as well.
Our students, we know for a fact, greatly benefit. At the high level of our master programmes, the law cannot be understood in isolation from its context. Our partnerships offer the broad view you need.

Moreover, Amsterdam is the gateway to other important capitals in Europe, and students can easily travel by fast train to, for example, Brussels, Paris, London or Berlin. This offers a unique experience of studying in the neighborhood of a real international business environment.

Last but not least: Amsterdam is a good place to spend your time! The seventeenth-century canals of Amsterdam were recently added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. The area around the city's main canals - Singel, Herengracht, Keizersgracht and Prinsensgracht - is an international icon of urban planning and architecture. Student life is as lively and rich as you want it to be. Museums and cultural life are world class. Any free hour well spent will provide you with long lasting memories.

Na de studie

Unsplashed background img 2
We offer this multidisciplinary master's programme for good reasons. Our partners - law firms and financial institutions – have been telling us time and again that not just legal, but also financial and psychological knowledge should be in the tool kit of todays lawyer. Bear in mind: these institutions have become partner of our masters' programme for a reason. They need the kind of people we educate.
This is an international trend. It is, for example, not just the Dutch Central Bank who wonders why financial regulation failed to prevent the financial crises; the thought that firm “culture” it is an important factor in either undermining or enhancing the efficacy of regulation is increasingly embraced internationally.

Therefore, be it the Dutch students or those from abroad, those who successfully completed the Master's programme have a wide range of career choices. They can work as professional business lawyers, in-house legal counsels for companies, government officials, corporate executives, legal professionals for an international (intergovernmental) organization, etc.
