The LLM programme in Public International Law at the University of Groningen provides students with a strong foundation in most fields of public international law, and is designed to provide an optimal mix of teaching and mentorship, to ensure the realization of our goals in the field of knowledge dissemination and the training of academic, legal, and practical skills.

Within these parameters, the programme offers some flexibility in the range of courses that can be chosen and students can opt for a peace & security, an economic/environmental or a dispute settlement profile. The programme offers the opportunity for starting or enhancing one's professional career in an international legal environment, be it at a national government level, in the United Nations, or at an international non-governmental agency.

Following an LLM programme in any field of international law in the Netherlands guarantees that students will study in an optimally international law-oriented environment: some of the most important international legal institutions in the world reside in the Netherlands, including the International Court of Justice, the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, the International Criminal Court and the Iran-US Claims Tribunal.

Career Prospects

International law can be found everywhere and is practiced all around the world, therefore opportunities are not limited to the legal department of an international organization or the foreign ministry. Expertise in international law is needed in many national governmental institutions and ministries, intergovernmental organizations, non-governmental organizations, internationally operating enterprises and academic institutions.
