Advanced LL.M. Programme in Global and European Labour Law at Leiden University, the Netherlands

With the globalization of the economy, labour law too has become a global subject. Issues as corporate social responsibility and decent work are becoming standards all companies and States have to comply with. Various rules and mechanisms exist to promote and ensure labour rights, among which the Conventions of the ILO, directives of the European Union, human rights treaties and the Guiding Principles of the OECD and the UN. In this programme students will study and compare all these rules and mechanisms from a primarily legal perspective with an eye for the difference between the law in the books and the law in practice, as well as with a sense for the various economic, social, political and cultural contexts.
The teaching takes place in small, seminar style classes, which requires active participation by the students. The teaching staff exisits of experts from the Labour Law Department of Leiden University, visiting professors from other Dutch universities and universities from aroung the world, as well as distinguished legal practitioners specialised in specific aspects of global and European labour law.
