Hi!
I was admitted too, but I am still asking myself the same question. The answers I found so far is that, according to the general impression Ams Law School is not among the first in The Netherlands, but in what regards the international law, they seem to have a nice reputation and the intl law clinic sounds interesting. Anyway I didn't decide yet if it is worth the financial effort but I'm applying also for an MTEC scholarship.
How about you?

Hi, I have been also admitted to the Amsterdam Law School, but I am not sure if i will to go. i am not convienced about the quality of the programme and the teaching ability of professors. The only thing that still makes me think about UvA is that it is located...in Amsterdam. I have also applied in Leiden and Groningen. In the end i think i will choose one of these two, with groningen being the first choice due to the courses they offer.

I also applied for the international law programme but what i don't like is that i had most of the courses they offer in my bachelor (state responsibility, sources of IL etc). i don't want to learn the same things. however, if you choose to go, lets keep contact. i would love to have a free place to stay when i will come to amsterdam. just joking

Dear geoman if i finally choose ams and it is true that you had most of the courses in your bachelor (so you already know them) you are always welcome

Hi there!
I did international law in Amsterdam, both undergrad and LLM. The law faculty of Amsterdam is not particularly good (none in the Netherlands are) - it is too big. However, the Amsterdam International Law School is an exeption. It is a small community run by a devoted Prof. The staff is international and has great connections to the diverse institutes in The Hague. Expect to become a very good and technically able professional. If you want to learn more about the (political or moral) validity of international law, go elsewhere. If you want to learn the law, go to Amsterdam.

Greetings and thanx

Hey, don't know if anyone can answer these Q's but does anyone know if you can start the course in second semester instead of first semester, I will be coming from Australia and with our academic year I won't be finished university till Nov this year. Secondly, I am a Polish citizen as well as an Aussie so does that make me an EU student for the purposes of tuition fees (seeing Poland is part of the EU)?

hi all, I read carefully your thoughts - I got MTEC sholarship for UvA - European Law, but I also got scholarship for the Central European University in Budapest - International Business Law, and now I am really in trouble choosing. What attracts me in Amsterdam is of course the place not exactly the program, but still I am hesitating. I would appreciate your advise

Congratulations!
If i were you I would definitely choose Budapest. It is a great town and has one of the best LL.M. programmes in Europe.Quality of Uva is not very good but you can still spend some time there as a tourist and not as a student.

Hi,
I was also admitted at the LLM - International and European Law with an MTEC scholarship.
As a graduate of the LLM I was wondering if you could advice on some of the elective courses.
I would like to put an emphasis on business-related topics but I am not sure what to chose.
Also, could you please give me any details on the Amsterdam International Law Clinic?

Thanks,

Ioana - I'm a Romanian lawyer, by the way.

I' ve been admitted to ALS's LLM, and I have already bought my airline ticket.
I think ALS is a great choice, first the LLM is considered one of the best in the Netheralnds, second, living in Amsterdam gives you a great choice to learn Dutch and make contact with such a fascinating culture, and I have heard that dutch people are great in all senses! My advice is to choose Amsterdam as the place to be for a year, life is not only studies...you'll be totally a different person after you've had the chance to experience one of the most liberals cultures in the ...world.
When I had to choose, it was Paris or Amsterdam...ooops...Paris is really expensive and huge, hence Amsterdam gives me the choice to study and have a great LLM with less sacrifice. Sometimes, when people want to hire you, they look at you as a person, they want to find a balanced person,i.e: studies and personality.
Hope may advice may lean you decision to Amsterdam Law School.
My name is Juan. Cheers.

It seems like everybody was admitted to the ALS and got the MTEC scholarship (I wonder if there is anyone who was refused:). Hence, I am not an exception though I refused the MTEC scholarhip and chose LLM at the College of Europe (Belgium:)
However it could be, I still do see lots of pluses in the Amsterdam program & wish all of u (who go there) the best of good luck!

ps Bruges is not that far from Amstedam so I shall visit this legendary city for sure and maybe meet some of u one day. Regards:))

I'm glad we will see each other in Amsterdam. I suppose you are all coming for the introductory programme on September 1, right? I haven't purchased by ticket yet, I understand the ALS is in charge under the scholarship rules.

More on this subject: I've been told there were 145 applications for the 30 available scholarships, compared with only approx.40 last year ?!

I am still facing difficulties in chosing the elective courses for the 1st semester. Does anyone have some thoughts on that?

Well, about elective courses that depends in what you are interested in, first, i looked in what each course offered me, second the kind of teaching (case work) which I find particulary interesting, and then how it will enhance my LLM as an overall picture of International Law.
