How are international and transnational crimes prevented, investigated and prosecuted? Is criminal law an effective tool in the present context of globalized criminality? These questions will constitute some of the criminal law's biggest challenges for the years to come and are the focus of the Global Criminal Law LLM track, which explores the application of the criminal law - both substantive and procedural - in the context of global criminality, such as organized, transnational and international criminality.

The LLM programme in Global Criminal Law focuses on the application of the criminal law – both substantive and procedural - in the context of global criminality, including organized, transnational, and international criminality. This track offers you the two-fold opportunity to study substantive and procedural criminal law from a comparative and international perspective but also to specialize in the study of specific criminal behavior: organized and financial crimes, cybercrimes and international crimes.
