New, one-year program provides international comparative perspective

Leiden Law School in The Netherlands is launching a new specialized Master of Science (MSc) program in Crime and Criminal Justice starting in September 2012.

According to the law school, the new one-year program will provide "an advanced understanding of criminal justice by providing a multidisciplinary programme addressing key institutions, processes and cross-national issues on crime (prevention), law and policy."

The program will also feature an international comparative perspective, "which involves an in-depth analysis of differences in criminal justice systems, legislation, and policies between common law and civil law countries. Moreover, special attention will be paid to the major role The Netherlands have played in the development of national and supra-national crime legislation. "

The program can also be taken part-time over two years.
