The University of Amsterdam has just added another LLM program to its existing roster - the new Master's program in Law and Finance (LLM). This program is being launched under the partnership of the University's Law School and Business School. Though still pending accreditation, the LLM in Law and Finance is set to start September 2018 and applications are now accepted.
The University understands the increasing significance of finance to the world economy and consequently, the importance for lawyers to have advanced knowledge in financial economics. The design and development of the new LLM program was based on the survey conducted by industry leaders and the Harvard Law School, which shows that students with greater grasp of Accounting, Corporate Finance and Financial Statement Analysis will gain better advantage in the jobs market.
The LLM in Law and Finance can be accomplished in one year, on campus. It is open to Dutch and international students with a prior law degree or any academic degree with at least 60 EC of law component. Completion of the program may pave the way for the student's admission to the judiciary or the Dutch bar as long as required criteria are met.
