master in international criminal law


valeitaly
Hi guys, I'm looking for a good master in international criminal law..possibly the best one!
I took a look at the Leiden's one and at the UNICRI's one in Tourin and they seems really interesting, but I want to make the right choice, that's why I'm asking for your advices.
Are there other interesting LLM in this field?
I graduated in Bologna, and I'd like also to have an experience abroad..
Thanks a lot

I agree! Come to Leiden!

Their LL.M. in Public International Law has a Criminal component which is taught in The Hague. You could also do your thesis in that area if you wish (as far as I know, anyway).

You probably already saw this, but this is the course outline for the LL.M. at Leiden: www.studiegids.leidenuniv.nl/index.php3?m=25&c=5571

Hey!

Yes, I have applied and was accepted about two weeks ago.

The application is pretty simple actually. You'll need two letters of reference, a letter of intent (written by you), a transcript of your marks, the form, and the application fee (100,00 euro).

The direct link to the application form in PDF format is:
http://www.leiden.edu/prospective/content_docs/application/applmasters.pdf

I have only heard good things about the law faculty at Leiden. The fact that about half the teaching takes place at their international legal studies centre in The Hague is frankly pretty cool. The whole LL.M. class is - I think - about 70 students.

Merry Christmas!

Hey, am currently enrolling in that LLM Course. Your intended course is a specialized program within the advanced llm program in public international law ("PIL"). Leiden university offers 2 kind of llm program, i.e. regular llm and advanced llm. This year 24 students were admitted to adv llm in PIL (whereas about 35% of them are taking the int criminal law/"ICL" specialization). Though there are ICL specialization within the general PIL, however students of both programs mostly share the same courses, whereas several of the courses are taught in den haag. In my opinion, this program (PIL/ICL) is super cool, particularly because of the lectures. they are very good.

Hi illy! Unfortunately, i dont know how many student are they in the regular LLM and I dont know anything about the regular LLM as we have completely different classes, though share the same subject matter. As far as I know (from friends that study in the regular LLM), this program comprises the final year of undergraduate-master dutch students that open to international student as well (it seems that dutch education system work on some sort of continuing education for bachelor degree whereby a student, following their completion of several years bachelor degree, may continue to directly pursue master degree within the same unversity/program). I'll forward your questions to my friends studyin at regular llm and get back to you later!
> however, if i may suggest, for international student, go for the advanced llm if you're eligible. It's way more convinient that the regular

applesaft,
thanks for your reply. I thought about doing the LLM (adv) but one of the main reasons I am not doing it is because of the fees (does not offer the "home fee"). when you say that the Adv one is more convenient - how do u mean?
It would be great to hear from your friends who are doing the regular LLM! thanx a lot.

hi
have a look at this one : LLM in Criminal Law offered by Osgoode (Toronto, ON, Canada); price $18 000 but is online and has an in't crim law module

http://www.osgoodepd.ca/llm_special/llm_criminal_law.html
http://www.osgoodepd.ca/llm_special/documents/CriminalLLM_Brochure_W10.pdf

another option could be this one LLM in Criminology and criminal justice; it is offered by U of London and it's online; downside the module on in't crim law is not available right now but might be in the near future; check their site for more details

Hi, these postings have been really useful thanks! I'm also interested in studying a Master in International Criminal Law. I've seen that it seems the Universiteit van Amsterdam is offering an LLM in ICL in conjunction with Columbia University - is this correct? Does anyone know about it, and know if it's any good?

Other than from these postings, it seems like the Leiden LL.M. Advanced Studies in Public International Law (& International Criminal Law Specialisation) is the way to go?

Hi all, just an update from my previous post. The Master of International Criminal Law that spans the University of Amsterdam and Columbia University can only be applied for through the University of Amsterdam, and they will only accept EU citizens! (I'm Australian).
Columbia University only take students enrolled in their JD as part of the exchange, so they don't offer the Master of Int Crim.

So I'm back to square one a bit.

Hey, here is a current student in the Amsterdam-Columbia LLM ICL speaking :)

You do not need to be a EU citizen to be accepted to the program, one american guy got in through Amsterdam as well, instead of applying through Columbia. It is an awesome master, it is really focused on ICL, and a great way to meet the right people if you want to pursue a career in this field of law. Some of us will be working for Prof. George Fletcher on a research project in 2010, we have all been approached for internships at the tribunals and back in Amsterdam we will meet the president of the ICC. Have a look at this http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=193792359130&ref=mf, through this page you will be able to ask current students in the program any question you may have about it.

A big bonus is of course that you get to live in two awesome cities, New York and Amsterdam. Sorry for sounding like a saleswoman but I am realy enjoying it so far!
