Hi,

I have recently been admitted to University of Amsterdam, Leiden, and Erasmus Rotterdam in specialization Public International Law. It is hard to make a decision. Which university, do you think, is the best in this field? I heard the Tilburg University also has a great program in this field.

Hi Attila, congratulations!! I am also thinking to apply University of Amsterdam but in International and European Law program. As far as I know, the deadline for early applications is April, but you said you are already accepted. Does it mean, the application admission is on a rolling basis? Do you have any info about it?

Hi!! I'll also apply International and European Law program of the University of Amsterdam and Public International Law in Leiden. Lawyer.geo, I have understood that you will be notify of your admissin status six weeks after they receive your application package. I can tell Attila which one because for example, in my country the University of Amsterdam is well known, little know about Leiden but when I check the post in other treats I have the impression that people prefer Leiden, but Amsterdam is one of the favorite.

Yes, the admission is on a rolling basis at all universities. Amsterdam University and Erasmus notify you in about three weeks, and Leiden in six weeks. Another thing: at University of Amsterdam you have to indicate the field of specialization in advance. I also applied for International and European Law, but I was requested to choose a specialization during the admission process. Only Erasmus offers LLM in International and European Law.
This is what I managed to get through the net:
1) Erasmus is a great university, but they are better in other academic fields. However you should consider this university, since they offer LLM in "International and European Law"
2) Leiden is the most prestigious, and offers internship to excellent students, however, the quality of education is not as good as it was used to be. Some of the courses are thought in Hague. There are more than 17.000 students, so you will have a great time there, and you'll get an LLM from a famous and respected university.
3) University of Amsterdam is also have a good reputation, and it seems to me their curriculum is quite fascinating. You can choose from a broad selection of courses. And...let me do not go into the details of the advantages of Amsterdam...
4) I also read good opinions both about Groningen University, and Tilburg University. Tilburg University was ranked as the best among Dutch Law Professors. The faculty is quite new, and their are very enthusiastic, they provide you with high quality education. Since the university (and the city as well) is small, the classes are small in number. It is a tranquil place to learn. Moreover, they offer LLM in "International and European Law"
Although I did not apply there, it seems to me a good place. I am hesitating between Leiden and Amsterdam. Good luck for you guys!!!! Pls. share your opinions, and any gossips what you heard. Thanks

Hey attila!!! i'm absolutely agree with. Bur either way, Netherlands seems to be in the best option for a LLM in international law. What about scholarship? Do you know any scholarship available for Leiden and Amsterdam and when is the deadline? Thank you in advanced. Please keep in touch.

Dear all,

I am Anette van Sandwijk from Erasmus School of Law. I just wanted to let you know that basically all law schools in the Netherlands are good (all programmes are accredited by the NVAO). However, as for Erasmus School of Law; many of our exchange students having taken subjects in the field of International and European Public Law (IEPL) said they wanted to come back to Rotterdam to take the degree programme IEPL as the professors in this programme are excellent.

Kind regards,
Anette van Sandwijk

Dear Anette, thanks for the info. I am sure that Dutch Universities are very good, thats why I chose them. Before I applied to the universities, I had checked on the net many of them, and Erasmus seemed very good, too. However, I would rather curious about your opinion than others opinion. For instance, why did you choose Erasmus. Do you live in Rotterdam, or there were other things you concerned? Griselle, regarding scholarships check this site: http://postgraduate.leidenuniv.nl/finances/grantsandscholarships.jsp. It is a site of Leiden University, but you can surf to many other sites from here. Thanks' for any comment.

Dear All, First of all I would like to say that this site is extremely useful and people here, potential LLM students or actual LLM students are very, very friendly and helpful; I come from Georgia (the country Georgia, not State in the US) and we, Georgian young professionals do not have many possibilities to study abroad, we do not have representatives of European or American Universities to get information from, only few of them can be found here. So, this webiste, and specifically users of this website are very valuable, personally for me, as I get a lot of information, and learn more about what's going on around legal education in other countries.
So, again, thanks a lot to all of you and let's keep in touch!

hey,
1st off, congrats on the very impressive acceptances!!
i have done similiar research and come to much of the same conclusions as yourself on the same dutch colleges, tilburg included, and am going to apply soon, albeit for different courses.

with regard to deciding between amsterdam and leiden, i would imagine not that much will turn on which uni u end up choosing as they are both highly respected. maybe it would be best to decide on non-academic grounds, which place would u prefer to live in for a year? also u may consider tilburg as its tranquil atmosphere may be best to help u achieve your best academically.. on the other hand amsterdam is amsterdam!!!

also i would definitely consider where do u intend to work afterwards? important to remember that the further away from netherlands u live/intend to work the more the excellent reputation of leiden will stand in your favour

Hi olgun1903!!! If you check ALS website you'll find that you need to write a letter address to ALS Director, but didn't say anything else. I suppose that you must write it as a statement of purpose since they may want to know why are you requesting the scholarship. Hope this help you. Any other question please don't hesistate to ask. Good luck.

I have some opinion about the admission process at Tilburg University, they work really fast.

I applied through the internet on 10th of January 2008, on 17th of January 2008 I sent my documents and ordered ets to send in my TOEFL score to the university. Tilburg University received my documents on 6th of february 2008, it took only 2 days for them to review my documents, and on 8th of February they informed me that i have been admitted for the International and european public law.
Altough the law faculty is relatively new compare to leiden, I believe the LLM programme at Tilburg is quite famous and has a lot of international cooperation with other universities around the world.

By the way, does anybody around here, applied and admitted at Tilburg?

Hi all,
I've been accepted from Tilburg, Int. Business Law programme. And I am going to start in Aug. 2008.
I have also found out that Tilburg is a great university particularly with their innovative approach.
But do you have any updated info about its law faculty ranking in year 2007? (There are some info on Tilburg's web site, but it does not seem much updated.)
I hope you have such info for year 2007.. I could not find any. But I guess there may be some info in Dutch sources, newspapers, magazines, etc. And I can't speak Dutch. :(
You know that such ranking lists are much more available for US law schools, but I guess not much for Dutch law schools.
If you can somehow reach some info, a law ranking list, would you please share with me?
Thanks in advance.

LL.M.s in the Netherlands: Getting International Perspective in the Home of the ICC and the Peace Palace

Article Feb 20, 2017

With the softening of a law making it easier for international students to get work experience while they study, the Netherlands has become an even more attractive country to study law.
