Course detail

Criminal Justice is a one-year Master’s programme at the renowned Leiden Law School at Leiden University. This programme focuses on legitimacy and effectiveness of criminal justice systems around the world and the challenges they face in a globalising world. Applying a comparative perspective, criminal justice systems are analysed regarding their ability to deal with crimes that take place both within and beyond their national borders. Transnational crimes like human trafficking and terrorism increasingly demand coordinated criminal justice responses on a European or international level. The comparative study of criminal justice institutions therefore includes the study of supra-national bodies.

Comparative and multidisciplinary perspectives

The Criminal Justice Master distinguishes itself by its international comparative perspective, analysing criminal justice systems, legislation and policies in common law and civil law countries. The programme is unique both in its comparative and multidisciplinary focus. Students from all over the world with different backgrounds, such as Criminology, Social sciences, Law, Political sciences, and Philosophy, critically engage themselves with important questions in small-scale groups. Leiden Law School is located in two beautifully renovated national monuments in the historic heart of the medieval city of Leiden. Leiden is the place to study Criminal Justice because of its vicinity to the Hague: international city of peace and justice.

Purpose

As the program provides students with a broad and solid background in the realm of Criminal Justice, they are widely deployable in a variety of national and international institutions. At the same time, they are offered plenty of space to pursue their own specific topics of interest through various practical assignments.

Format

This programme is interactive and taught in small groups resulting in compelling discussions with students from all over the world with different disciplinary and (legal) cultural backgrounds. As a result, you will benefit from an extremely rich and interactive learning environment. Another advantage is that the academic staff in this Master has close ties with the relevant Criminal Justice issues in practice. Apart from following lectures, you will also participate in fieldtrips to Dutch and international institutions such as the Netherlands’ Council of State, Europol and the European Parliament.
