Global Criminal Law

How are international and transnational crimes prevented, investigated and prosecuted? Is criminal law an effective tool in the present context of globalized criminality?

These questions will constitute some of criminal law's biggest challenges for the years to come and are the focus of the Global Criminal Law LLM track, which explores the application of criminal law - both substantive and procedural - in the context of global criminality, such as organized, 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.

The LLM Global Criminal Law is registered under the LLM CROHO label Criminal Law and Criminology (60669).

More about this programme
  • Testimonial of Lejla Terzimehic, Bosnia and Herzegovina

    Sharing knowledge with my colleagues, all coming from different legal traditions, and learning from inspiring professors who all are authorities in their respective fields, enriched me with the skills I did not gain during my previous education.

    Thanks to the European Commission Scholarship and the Talent Grant from the University of Groningen, I got a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity – to expand my knowledge in the field of law I am most passionate about, at one of the oldest and most prestigious European universities. Being very intellectually challenging, this master programme has truly met my expectations. Sharing knowledge with my colleagues, all coming from different legal traditions, and learning from inspiring professors who all are authorities in their respective fields, enriched me with the skills I did not gain during my previous education. What I find to be the most beneficial is that the Dutch educational system, appreciating independence, taught us to develop a critical opinion on law-related issues. Moreover, this master programme had a unique approach in tackling controversial contemporary legal issues. Due to its strong comparative emphasis, it encouraged us to keep at constant track with our national law, which is of a huge significance. Both this master and a 6-month long internship at the International Criminal Tribunal for The Former Yugoslavia strengthen my belief in Justice. Furthermore, besides this academic benefit, I believe that studying abroad unequivocally broadens our horizons and tests prejudices we even are not aware of. Indeed it is only knowledge that can triumph over impunity, injustice and ignorance.
