Course content

The LLM programme in Public International Law at the University of Groningen provides students with a strong foundation in most fields of public international law, and is designed to provide an optimal mix of teaching and mentorship, to ensure the realization of our goals in the field of knowledge dissemination and the training of academic, legal, and practical skills. Within these parameters, the programme offers some flexibility in the range of courses that can be chosen and students can opt for a peace & security, an economic/environmental or a dispute settlement profile.
