Program Description

LLM International and European Law: Public International Law

University of Amsterdam

Public International Law is a track of the Master's programme in International and European Law.

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 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.

Moot court

As part of their programme, students have the opportunity to participate in the Philip C. Jessup International Moot Court. Each year, a team of our students represents the University of Amsterdam in the world's largest and most prestigious moot court competition.

Amsterdam International Law Clinic

Both Dutch and international students at the Faculty of Law have the unique opportunity to combine the theory and practice of international law by working at the Amsterdam Law Clinic during the course of the semester. Working on cases with staff and fellow students, you will give legal advice to the clients of the Clinic while earning ECTS credits towards your degree programme.
