The International Criminal Law programme combines the study of theoretical aspects and foundations of International 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.
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.
In November 2021 you will find a link here to Columbia Law School for up-to-date information regarding its 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.
Within the Master's programme International Criminal Law the course International Criminal Law Practice is part of the Amsterdam Law Practice.
