LL.M. in International Criminal Law


Hi,
So I've been doing some thinking as to pursuing my career in International Law. I have already done my Masters in Law in my home country and I'm willing to do an Advanced LL.M. in International Criminal Law in Leiden University, Netherlands. I needed some advice as to whether this course will be fruitful for me in the future, whether the college itself allows us to do internships/externships and whether post this course, I'll be able to find a job rightaway in the city?
Lot of such questions are crossing my mind and making me rather confused. My primal focus is to get a job or atleast an internsip if I plan on to travel all the way to Europe and be assured that it's worth it. If I can get some advice regarding job prospects/ Leiden University, I would be thankful!

PS, It would be great if there are some additional advice for me in the comments relating to the career or University itself.

Best.

chicken so...

In terms of jobs: it's highly dependent on (1) whether you are allowed to practice law in the Netherlands, and (2) what your command of the Dutch language is like. Being able to practice and speak the language would put you in a great position to get a lawyer-type job in the country. 

Otherwise, your career options will be more limited. In that case you might think about asking the school to put you in touch with students who have made the kind of leap you are considering.
