The International and Transnational Criminal Law programme combines the study of theoretical aspects and foundations of international and transnational criminal law with its practical application by offering a course that simulates the experience of pleading before an international (ised) tribunal and providing opportunities to engage in the Amsterdam Law Clinics, internships, and the international ICC Moot Court Competition.
The first semester at the Amsterdam Law School is dedicated to international criminal law. The second semester delves into transnational and European criminal law. All throughout the academic year, students will have the opportunity to engage in internships, participate in the Amsterdam Law Clinics and in the ICC Moot Court Competition. In addition, the Global Justice Sessions speaker series will continue to take place.
The programme consists of both compulsory and elective courses.
The information on this website is valid for the current academic year and may change for next year. In May the Course Catalogue is updated for the following academic year.
In the Amsterdam Law Hub, students and staff of the Amsterdam Law School collaborate with social partners, legal entrepreneurs and institutions to develop legal solutions and innovations which meet the needs of a rapidly evolving society. You can gain practical experience here (Law Clinics) and easily make contact with legal institutions for internships.
In the courses of our unique experiential learning programme, you apply your academic knowledge of the law and the skills you have learned by putting yourself in the shoes of a legal professional, in practice or in simulated situations. By reflecting on who you are as a lawyer, you work on your professional identity. The courses therefore build a bridge to society and the future professional field.
