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 United States in the second semester. This Master track on International Criminal Law 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 programme is unique because of the dual perspective it offers on international criminal law. The International Criminal Law LLM combines insights from a common law focus offered by Columbia Law School with a civil law perspective provided by the Amsterdam Law School.
