Advanced LL.M Leiden International Criminal Law Specialization


Hello!

if anyone does not mind answering a couple of questions:

1) I want to pursue an advanced LL.M in Public International Law with a specialisation in International Criminal Law. Can anyone please tell me if I do not have any work experience, will it affect my application? It is not like work experience in the conventional sense, more like internships undergone during my course at law school. 6 in all, 2 in international organisations. I still have to graduate in May 2016

2) I do have publications. 7 in corporate law, tax law and IPR Law and then I really took up PIL and published two papers on international criminal law. how well does this seem to fare?


Also, is there anyone here who has been admitted without any work experience after graduating?

Hi karandhall1992,

I will be graduating in May as well and I have already received my conditional acceptance in November (I know this is somewhat late, but just in case the information is useful to you). I have done several internships and have had other "work experience" during school (two internships, one practicum, and one-year clinical programme).

I don't know if the process gets harder or even if the deadlines are past, I just found this site. But I will say that compared to my credentials I think you've got a strong resume.

Since I haven't graduated yet other than internships and summer work I don't have any experience and I got admitted, so if that's where you are as well I would not worry.
