Program Description

LLM International and European Law: Public International Law

University of Amsterdam

Public international law has a long tradition but also an acute modern relevance. Its main functions are the facilitation of the co-existence of independent states and communities and the furtherance of international cooperation for shared interests. Both functions are of critical importance in an era of internationalisation and globalisation. The Public International Law curriculum provides students with a broad knowledge of general international law. Public international law encompasses a wide diversity of specialised fields. The wide variety of elective courses allows students to specialise in particular areas of public international law such as human rights law, humanitarian law/the law or armed conflict, international criminal law, international trade and investment law, and international environmental law.

The Public International Law track aims to advance research and writing skills and to involve students in the practical application of international law. This may be accomplished through enrolment in the Amsterdam International Law Clinic, the International Law in Domestic Courts project or one of the international moot court competitions in which the University participates.

The Public International Law track is taught by leading international law scholars with a high academic reputation and broad experience in the practice of international law. In addition to lectures, most courses are taught in smaller seminars or working groups allowing for a challenging exchange of ideas on the latest developments and academic insights in this dynamic area of law.

Degree certificate

Public International Law is a track of the accredited degree programme International and European Law. After successful completion of this programme, you will receive a legally accredited Master's degree in International and European Law and the title Master of Laws (LLM).

Programme outline

The programme introduces students to the core areas of general international law, including sources, international responsibility, international organisations, and human rights. There is ample room for elective courses (about half of the programme) and the wide variety of electives allows you to design a programme to match your specific interests and ambitions.

The programme allows students to combine their study of the theoretical aspects of international law with its practical application, for example by participating in the Amsterdam International Law Clinic or in the various moot court competitions.
