Course content

The LLM programme in Global Criminal Law focuses on the application of criminal law – both substantive and procedural - in the context of global criminality, including organised, transnational, and international criminality. This track offers you the two-fold opportunity to study substantive and procedural criminal law from a comparative and international perspective but also to specialise in the study of specific criminal behaviour: organised and financial crimes, cybercrimes and international crimes.

By studying in the one year LLM track in Global Criminal Law, you will join a very dynamic and vibrant environment which attracts students from all around the world. The programme offers a unique insight into transnational criminality and you will benefit from the expertise of renowned academics as well as from specific training into research and presentation skills, with a view to fully equip you for careers within international organizations and judicial institutions as well as within intergovernmental and national government agencies.
