Columbia University School of Law and the Amsterdam Law School offer a joint LLM programme in International Criminal Law. The Master's programme in International Criminal Law is the first programme to focus on international criminal law as a distinct field of legal study. The central aim of the programme is to train a new style of international criminal lawyers by offering a broad and deep understanding of relevant issues and supporting the development of academic skills through the analysing of such issues.
International Criminal Law (LLM)
The International Criminal Law programme combines the study of theoretical aspects and foundations of international criminal law with its practical application, by offering a workshop in criminal tribunals and providing opportunities to engage in internships.

The programme consists of both compulsory and elective courses.
