Columbia University School of Law and the Amsterdam Law School offer a joint LLM programme in International Criminal Law. The Master's programme in International Criminal Law is the first programme to focus on international criminal law as a distinct field of legal study. The central aim of the joint LLM programme is to train a new style of international criminal lawyers by offering a broad and deep understanding of relevant issues and supporting the development of academic skills through the analysing of such issues.
The joint LLM programme is unique because of the dual perspective it offers on international criminal law: the common law and criminal law-oriented focus from Columbia University and the civil law and criminal law perspective offered by the Amsterdam Law School.
