The Transnational Law Programme is aimed at training students in different national legal systems. University College Utrecht offers this programme in close cooperation with the Washington University School of Law in Saint Louis (WUSOL), Missouri, US. As a Transnational Law Programme student you enroll in the Social Science major at University College Utrecht, taking a set number of Law courses. In the third year you go on exchange to WUSOL for a semester. By taking law courses at both University College Utrecht and WUSOL, students acquire their legal skills and knowledge within the context of the two major longstanding legal traditions of civil law and common law, each in its natural environment. After completing the programme you have access to some of the Masters in Law (LLM) programmes at Utrecht University and WUSOL.
Note: this programme is not aimed at becoming a practicing bar lawyer either in the USA or in the Netherlands. Students who pursue a career as a barrister, solicitor or in the judiciary will need additional legal training.
