The Erasmus School of Law dates from 1963. It became an integral part of the university in 1973. One of the striking characteristics of the Erasmus School of Law is its interdisciplinary emphasis and its business and international orientation. The aim is to make students aware of the way in which the law functions within a socio-economic context. The University of Rotterdam is affliated with Vrije University in Amersterdam.
The Erasmus School of Law uses many different teaching methodologies such as lectures, seminars, essay/paper, coursework and (interim) examinations. By creating an interactive learning environment, especially during the seminars, students are required to actively participate in class discussions and use creative thinking.
