post-graduate courses

the situation before bologna
The situation before ‘Bologna’
  • graduate course with Dutch degree “Meester”, “Mr” (“Master”)

the situation after bologna
The situation after ‘Bologna’
  • graduate course with International degree “Master”, “LLM”
  • Master = LLM (= “Meester”)
  • the question (therefore) is: How to distinguish a postgraduate (Master) course from a graduate (Master) course
post graduate continuing education
Postgraduate/continuing education
  • postgraduate courses were chosen for short term topicalities or updates in the legal field, or for broadening the general legal knowledge with a particular legal discipline
  • at a certain point in time ‘continuing education’ became a topic (and an obligation from the bar for practising advocates)
  • so, ‘continuing education’ was chosen for short term topicalities or updates in the legal field, or for broadening the general legal knowledge with a particular legal discipline
  • postgraduate courses then became more substantial and would preferably give an LLM degree
  • the question is: How to distinguish postgraduate courses from ‘continuing education’
