I actually asked this exact question to the programme coordinator. She couldnt answer, though, because it is still early in the admissions cycle. BUT, I did get some other info. She tells me the split in teaching between The Hague and Leiden is about 50 / 50. International Dispute Settlement and International Criminal Law, as well as Practicum and Privatissimum were taught at the Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies in The Hague this year. It could change slightly for '07.
Lectures are given to the whole LL.M. group, whereas seminars are given in smaller groups that max out at about 35. From this, I think we can conclude that the whole LL.M. class is in the range of 60 or 70 students.

60-70 students is small .... hopefully a good mix of students from lots of coutries ...

I think it will be an interesting mix. Particularly since EU students pay a "home fee", so Europeans, anyway, should be plentiful. As well as a smattering of others from abroad!

Particularly, it would seem, Australia and Canada!

I am actually a dual citizen (Canada/ Italy (EU)) so I get the home fee. The Leiden Scholarship programme seems pretty generous -- just write them a note outlining your need, resources, etc... and they see what they can do. Of course, I have no experience on how this actually works out!

Might want to consider getting hitched to a European...

My post above didn't seem to make it through! I have applied for the Pil LLM at Leiden, but haven't been offered a place yet - I hope this isn't unusual!
