International Criminal Law - Joint programme (International Criminal Law)

Columbia University School of Law and the Amsterdam Law School offer a joint LLM programme in International Criminal Law, with an exchange to the US in the second semester. This Master track is the first to focus on international criminal law as a distinct field of legal study. The central aim of the joint LLM programme is to train a new style of international 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 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.
