LLM in The Netherlands- Human Rights Law


Taniaforsh

Hi to you all,

I have a question that many have asked here before, I wonder which one is the best law school in The Netherlands.
I have an Israeli LLB and currently working threw my year as an intern in crim law, in order to be allowed to do the Israeli BAR. Even though I believe I will not stay here, and prefer to pursue a career in the human rights field, in the UN or an NGO of some kind.

I applied for Leiden, Utrecht, Maastricht and Tilburg.
So far, got positive answer from Maastricht and Tilburg, still waiting for the others.

My partner and I plan on living in Amsterdam, because of his work, which is pretty important given the long way to Maastricht.
Even though, between the two, I somehow prefer Maastricht (Tilburg wants me to do a course in International Law, which I already studied during my LLB, and they don't seem to care).


So my question basically is which program is the best. Should I apply for University of Amsterdam too? And as a graduate of which university will it be easier to find a job?

I would be grateful to anyone who will give me some piece of information.

Hi,

I was accepted onto the Public International Law LLM at Utrecht and can recommend the university. One of the major things it has going for it is the Netherlands Institute of Human Rights, a prominent research and documentation centre. The course also aims to provide internships with the large international organs - ICC, ICJ, ICTY, NATO etc. - which is incredibly valuable for career prospects.

In all honesty, though, I think all the Dutch unis are going to be strong when it comes to human rights. You'll notice that there are plenty of academics who've worked at one of the international courts and there is the feel of being right at the heart of the action. Obviously if you're going to be living in Amsterdam you should take logistics into consideration. Utrecht is about 45 minutes from Amsterdam (Schipol), and while the public transport system is very good, the costs could quickly mount up.

Thank you for your informative answer.
Last week I was accepted to Leiden- Advanced LLM PIL- international Criminal Law. Utrecht University did not reply my application yet.


I understand that Leiden is a very good university as well. What do you think?
