Study programme

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.

Amsterdam Law School students and Columbia Law School students complete the programme as a group, spending the first semester at the Amsterdam Law School and the second at Columbia Law School.

The programme consists of both compulsory and elective courses.

First semester

  • Comparative Introduction to Civil and Common Law
  • International Criminal Law
  • International Criminal Tribunals – Substantive Law
  • International Criminal Tribunals – Procedural Aspects

Current range of courses in the Course Catalogue

The quality of this joint LLM programme has been positively assessed by the Accreditation Organisation of The Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO). This means that upon successful completion of the programme students will receive a legally accredited master's degree and the title Master of Laws (LLM).
