The LL.M. Programme in International and European Legal Studies is the first one-year graduate programme taught entirely in English at the Athens Law School ( It is an intensive master’s programme which provides its students with an in-depth understanding and a hands-on knowledge of both European Private Law as well as International and European Business Law. Leading academics and practitioners from Greece and abroad with practical experience in specific fields are invited regularly to collaborate with the academic staff. At the same time, our students benefit from the strong cooperation of the Athens Law School with the European Law School Network, comprising the Humboldt Universität in Berlin, Université Paris II (Panthéon-Assas), King’s College, La Sapienza University in Rome, the University of Amsterdam, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, the Universidade Cattolica Portuguesa in Lisbon and, from fall 2022, the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.  (

The LL.M. programme consists of two separate LLM Courses:

a) the LLM in Private Law and Business Transactions and

b) the LLM in European Private Law.

The LLM course Private Law and Business Transactions offer students a wide variety of intensive modules which cover the whole range of modern private transactions, with a particular focus on their international and mainly European dimension.

The LLM course European Private Law consists of a variety of core and optional modules which cover the most important contemporary issues in the field of private law, having regard to the developments of EU legislation and case law.

Both courses seek to provide students with a solid doctrinal and practical background which would allow them to successfully cope with the ever-demanding academic and professional environment, while developing their careers at the highest level of national and international practice.

In order to obtain the LL.M. degree, students must successfully complete two semesters and write a dissertation in a field of their choice, under the supervision of our academic staff.

Applications for the academic year 2022-2023 will run between 12 May 2022 and 10 June 2022.
