What is this programme about?
Students and lecturers from International Criminal Law will tell you what you can expect from this programme and discuss career opportunities once you have graduated.


  • What are the consequences of the corona situation for studying in 2021-2022?

    We understand that you may have concerns about how the corona pandemic will affect future studies. Our starting point is that in the academic year 2021-2022 we will be able to offer all teaching activities on campus without restrictions. We are eager to return to the campus, to face-to-face teaching and meeting up with each other. All degree seeking students (including international ones) are therefore expected to come to Amsterdam by the start of the academic year 2021-2022.

    Assuming we can teach on campus, we do not offer the option of following our education via distance learning. It goes without saying that we are dependent on the developments regarding the coronavirus and what the policies and rules of the Dutch government will be. If the situation calls for it, we should return to a scenario of (partially) online education. As soon as more information is available, we will post it on our website.

  • What will my career prospects be like?

    This LLM programme prepares students for a career in international and transnational criminal law. Graduates are singularly qualified to assume leadership roles at prosecution services, judicial bodies and law firms specialised in transnational crimes and/or mutual legal assistance, academic institutions, NGOs, and government ministries including foreign affairs, justice, and defence. Other prospects include careers at international criminal courts and tribunals including the International Criminal Court (ICC).

  • What is the Amsterdam Law Practice?

    The Amsterdam Law School offers an Experiential Education programme unique in the Netherlands. In its simplest terms, experiential education aims to let you learn by reflecting on a personal learning experience, or, in other words, to learn by doing. Each Master’s programme offers courses from what is collectively known as the Amsterdam Law Practice (ALP) in which you are asked to apply your knowledge of the law to questions from actual practice.

    These courses place you in a particular professional role and make experiences a part of the learning process. This takes shape, for example, in the form of moot courts, simulations, clinics, and internships. In all cases, you take on the role of a lawyer and learn to reflect on who you are as a lawyer, and how you want to contribute to the society in the future, through the way you carry out your work. Within each Master's programme it is possible to follow a minimum of 6 ECTS of experiential education and a maximum of 12 ECTS. The ICC moot court or an Internship are some examples of the Amsterdam Law Practice.

  • Is there an Honour’s programme for Master’s students?

    Yes, if you are looking for more challenge and academic depth the Honours programme Academic Excellence track could be interesting for you. It is designed for excellent law students with evident research talent. The programme can be pursued in addition to all LLM programs (Dutch and English). You will receive advanced training in research methods and academic skills as well as gather first-hand research experience during a research internship at one of our research projects.
