How are international and transnational crimes prevented, investigated and prosecuted? Is criminal law an effective tool in the present context of globalised criminality?

These questions will constitute some of criminal law's biggest challenges for the years to come and are the focus of the Global Criminal Law LLM track, which explores the application of criminal law - both substantive and procedural - in the context of global criminality, such as organised, transnational and international criminality.

Official detailed information on the programme can be found here.

The LLM Global Criminal Law is registered under the LLM CROHO label Global Criminal Law (60669).

Why study this programme in Groningen?

This programme has a strong focus on the application of criminal law in a globalised and internationalised context. It thus draws from comparative criminal law and international criminal law as well as from rules regulating international cooperation in criminal matters to explore particular types of global criminality: organised and financial crimes, cyber-crimes and international crimes.
