The moral philosophy behind legal systems

Discover the why behind the law

How can we respond to grave injustices committed by the state in the past, like colonialism? What does it mean to be a free and equal citizen in a modern democracy? What are the ethical considerations behind euthanasia and abortion laws? 

If you have a legal background, but you’ve found yourself asking questions about the underlying justice behind legal assumptions and provisions, you’ve come to the right place.

In the Philosophy of Law and Governance specialisation of the two-year Master’s in Philosophy, you’ll tackle challenging questions like these, gaining a deeper understanding of the systems of law and justice in Western society.

This Master’s programme is especially designed for legal graduates with a deep interest in the theoretical foundation of the law. Most students follow a traditional Master’s in Law at the same time, meaning that you’ll come out with two Master’s degrees – one in Law and one in Philosophy. This is truly a unique selling point, allowing your career to go in two very different directions.
