Dutch student and water polo player Loek Foster chose the Master’s programme in International Trade and Investment Law. He enjoys the small groups of students of different nationalities.
‘In the LLM in International Trade and Investment Law, our students learn to understand, evaluate and operate in the rules and institutions that underpin the global economy, affecting not only governments but all those that engage in economic activity anywhere’, says Dr. Geraldo Vidigal, coordinator of the Master’s programme. ‘Besides learning legal rules, in their papers and Master’s theses students are encouraged to reflect upon specific aspects of the legal system governing international economic relations. They go on to work not only for law firms, but also for the states, international organizations, companies and non-governmental organizations that operate and help shape the global legal environment in which economic exchanges take place today.’
