This programme provides the momentum for anyone interested in a rewarding career in law, business, politics or policy within the EU, or beyond. In-depth knowledge of EU law has become even more relevant after the recent vote of the UK electorate to leave the EU. EU law is a complex and fascinating subject that weighs ever more heavily on policymaking in the UK, Europe and internationally, which is why in-depth knowledge of European law is vital to any legal career.

The negotiations on the UK’s departure from the EU will raise complex questions with a possible special status for Scotland (or even renewed calls for independence) adding a further layer. Even after a so-called Brexit, EU law will remain relevant to lawyers in the UK not only when they are dealing with pre-Brexit questions, but also because any future EU-UK relationship is likely to be heavily influenced by it. Against that background, the importance of advanced knowledge in EU law to employment in the public and private sectors will only increase.
