Which organisations have the authority to intervene when violations of human rights occur? Which legal means can be used to combat international terrorism?

In the International Criminal Law specialisation (of the Advanced LLM in Public International Law), you will gain foundational knowledge on international criminal law and international criminal procedure. You will study the systemic environment of international criminal law and its link to related fields, such as

  • international human rights law
  • international humanitarian law and
  • general public international law.

Outside of your coursework, additional time will be allotted for you to pursue personal interests within related fields. You will be specifically trained in criminal procedure as well as advocacy and cross-examination. Classes involve real life assignments from practice. You will write, argue and defend motions, individually or in a team, before practicing lawyers or litigation specialists. Special attention will be devoted to the law of international criminal courts and tribunals (e.g. International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia and Rwanda, International Criminal Court) and the link to legal practice.
