International and Transnational Criminal Law (International Criminal Law)
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.
The programme is unique because of the dual perspectives it offers on international and transnational criminal law. The International and Transnational Criminal Law track of the ICL Master programme combines the perspective of the international adjudication of international crimes with its domestic perspective, whilst bridging the gap between International and Transnational Criminal Law.
The first semester at the Amsterdam Law School is dedicated to International Criminal Law. The second semester delves into transnational criminal law and offers opportunities for internships, law clinics, and research for courts and tribunals in the Netherlands.
