This unique Master's gives you a broad, solid foundation of international legal knowledge and the chance to specialise in such areas as human rights, the environment and law of the sea.
Do you wish to pursue an international legal career that makes a difference? Are you interested in international peace and security, human rights, international environmental law and law of the sea? The intensive one-year LLM Public Int'l Law gives you thorough insights and solid skills in the creation and application of public international law.
In this programme you'll work closely with your lecturers - legal experts who are often involved in professional practice - and your classmates, international students with whom you'll collaborate throughout the year. The theory presented in compulsory and elective courses is enhanced by practical experience. You'll participate in a moot court, and will have a chance to visit a variety of international courts within the Netherlands, so you gain familiarity with the international legal environment.
'I opted for the programme because of my fascination with the complex and evolving international legal order. One of the most exciting experiences was the Moot Court - we were assigned a case currently pending before the International Court of Justice. Can you imagine a better preparation for your future career?' - Charlotte Duijf, alumna
