How can the law pave the way for a sustainable future? And how is the law sometimes used to prevent it? Is terrorism a matter for international criminal law or international security law – or both? And what’s a lawyer’s moral responsibility in these cases?

Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam's new Law in Society Bachelor’s programme examines all these complex societal questions and more, from a range of legal perspectives.

Discover your Law In Society study programme
Instead of the traditional approach to public, private and criminal law, this programme starts with real societal problems and looks at how different legal perspectives can be applied. Using a multidisciplinary approach with a strong social sciences component and a cross-cultural emphasis, you’ll work in groups to carry out empirical research on real-world cases.

Informação importante

Quais são os objetivos da formação?: The programme centres around four themes that are hyper relevant in today’s society: security, globalisation of markets, migration and sustainability. You will address each theme at both global and local levels, from different legal perspectives, using relevant social sciences tools and research methodologies.

For example, many apartments in Amsterdam are rented out to tourists via Airbnb: while it may be a global company headquartered in Silicon Valley, it has a huge impact at local level in Amsterdam. What can local governments do to regulate the apartment rental business? Where does the responsibility lie if damage is caused to your house? How do public and private law intersect here? In another example, what are the employment law implications for companies like Uber and Foodora, which use "self-employed" drivers and delivery agents? Should governments step in to monitor safety at public law level?

In short, this programme starts with the messy reality of today's world, examines how the law intersects with that reality, and how it can be used to effect change. After all, if you want to make real change in society, you need to work at the level of laws and regulations. This programme will give you the tools you need to make an impact - whether that's internationally at the UN, a well-known law firm at the Zuidas in Amsterdam, or making a difference locally in your own community.

Programa

First year

You’ll dive into one of the biggest issues of our age: security – including global terrorism, as well as libel and assault cases. Alongside the philosophy of law and security, you’ll learn about criminology and empirical research. In the second semester, you’ll immerse yourself in the globalisation of markets, and will use psychology and statistics to deepen your understanding of how these markets work.

Subjects
  • Libel, Blasphemy and Assault
  • Methodology and Empirical Research
  • Diversity
  • Criminology
  • Terrorism
  • Philosophy of Law and Security
  • Amsterdam and the Platform Economy
  • Statistics & SPSS
  • Multinationals and the Platform Economy
  • Psychology
Second year

You’ll explore migration – not just from an abstract point of view, but by meeting and interviewing those involved. In small groups, you’ll learn qualitative research methods like interview techniques and negotiation skills which are a great preparation for a legal career. You’ll also investigate topics like climate change and artificial intelligence – and the ethical dilemmas that lawyers face as a result.

Third year

For your minor in your first semester, you’ll get the opportunity to go abroad and put your international curiosity to good use. For those staying in Amsterdam, there are plenty of minors offered in English at VU Amsterdam, from migration studies to global food security. If you wish to practise law in the Netherlands, you can use your minor to obtain 30 credits towards your "civiel effect" qualification (see the Future tab for more information). At the end of your final year, you’ll also write your Bachelor’s thesis.
