The University of Antwerp Law Faculty’s Law and Development Research Group runs a post-graduate programme on “Sustainable Development and Global Justice” (SUSTLAW) from 11 February to 3 May 2019. SUSTLAW offers a comprehensive teaching programme based on the research lines of the Law and Development Research Group. The programme runs in conjunction with the Faculty’s LL.M.

The Sustainable Development and Global Justice Postgraduate programme is part of the English Master of Laws taught at the law faculty of the University of Antwerp. The programme joins the very best of the Global South with the best of the Global North for a unique educational experience. SUSTLAW offers four courses: International sustainable development law, human rights and global justice, law in developing countries and external actors in economic global governance. The programme combines theoretical insights with hands-on training, site visits, moot courts and other role plays, making it a very rich and intense learning experience. It seeks to offer profound legal training in a critical and contextualized way.

SUSTLAW attracts a very diverse student body with participants from all over the globe. Leading experts from the North and South introduce salient features of their disciplines, and challenge students to reflect and digest key challenges for sustainable development and global justice.
