UCD and Utrecht University Partnership


College Principal of UCD College of Social Sciences and Law, Colin Scott, addressed the 'Legal Research Master Conference 2016' on Friday, 20 May in Utrecht University. The conference explored 'Blending the Public and the Private: Privatisation of Public Law and Enforcement' from the viewpoint of security law, environmental law and competition law.

Professor Scott's participation continues the increasing collaboration between UCD and Utrecht University, which includes a new joint two-year double-masters degree exploring pressing concerns facing Europe today. Students analyse issues of European governance from different angles involving law and public administration in an interdisciplinary environment. Students graduate with two masters degrees – an MSc in European Governance from UCD and an MSc in European Governance from Utrecht University.
