As some of you may already know, I am the director of the LL.M in competition and IP law at the University of Liege (Belgium). We have just received the new brochure (see link at the end of this post) and I take the opportunity to make a little advertisement for the programme.
Our LL.M. is certainly unique here on the continent. Not that it is priced at a level that is almost predatory. Rather, it exhibits a number of other features which make it - in my opinion - a 5* education programme:
- Focus and exhaustiveness of the courses: ranging from general IP and competition law to economics of competition law, market regulation in the pharmaceutical/food sector, competition and IP, patent law, etc.;
- Teaching team boasting academics and high-profile practitioners - J.Y Art, J.F. Bellis, J. Derenne, JJ. Evrard, D. Hull, A. Strowel, G. Van Overwalle, P. Wautelet, etc.;
- Numerous extracurricular activities - the many conferences and seminars we had this year were made possible thanks to the support of the students. Our students also write case summaries in the E-competitions online bulletin;
- Proximity from Brussels;
- The vast majority of our students finds a job prior to the end of the LL.M.
Please do not hesitate to contact me, should you have any queries on the programme. Our admission requirements have so far proven quite flexible and we aim at attracting students from everywhere inside and outside Europe.
