To provide students with a solid legal culture, a complementary and in-depth training in a foreign law before they start their studies.
The study of foreign legal systems and the use of the comparative method are nowadays fundamental to understand legal developments, to learn transnational legal relations and to better evaluate national law.
In addition, economic, social and political globalisation is accompanied by the development of transnational legal relations. This makes knowledge of foreign systems and their different modes of organisation, as well as their legal practices, indispensable.
Furthermore, it is important to understand the role of the legal system in the development of the European Union.
Finally, the development of transnational litigation requires today's lawyers to be familiar with foreign legal systems, certain foreign substantive laws and foreign modes of legal reasoning.
