Public International Law (International and European Law)

Study programme


The Master's programme Public International Law consists of a core of compulsory courses that ensure an in-depth knowledge of general international law and the development of the skills required for a career in international law. In addition, it allows students to tailor the programme to their personal interests and ambitions by enrolling in various elective courses.

Students are taught not only in lectures but also in small-group seminars. In these seminars, guided by a lecturer, they exchange views and debate solutions to complex legal issues. Lectures and seminars are taught by top researchers and practitioners. Many of them have experience at international institutions, international tribunals, and other public institutions or top law firms. Their work and activity drives the conversation in the field. Read more about our students and staff.

This Master offers you a unique programme for experiential education, under the umbrella of the Amsterdam Law Practice. You will work with fellow students towards the solution of practical legal problems. You learn by doing, in an educational setting that prepares you to be a lawyer that makes a difference.
