Program Description

LLM in International and Transnational Criminal Law

University of Amsterdam

The Amsterdam Law School offers a full LLM in International and Transnational Criminal Law, with transnational criminal law courses and opportunities for internships, law clinics and research for courts and tribunals in the Netherlands in the second semester. This Master programme track is the first to focus on international and transnational criminal law as distinct fields of legal study. The central aim is to train a new style of criminal lawyers who are capable of transcending (disciplinary) borders, by offering a broad and deep understanding of relevant issues pertaining to international and cross-border justice and supporting the development of academic skills through the in-depth analysis of such issues.
