In addition to the Faculty of Law’s LLMs in International Human Rights Law and Public International Law being 'Top-Rated'
by the Keuzegids Higher Education Guide 2018 – Master’s programmes, the LLM in
Global Criminal Law
(GCL)* has also been given this award for 2018.
This week, Keuzegids
assessed 18 additional master’s programmes
in the Netherlands and the GCL programme was one of five of these programmes earning the designation of Top-Rated from its overall evaluation score in its category. Assessments for programmes are based on student evaluations, with a Top-Rated designation only given to programmes with 76 points or higher.
Prof. Dr. Caroline Fournet, the Academic Director of the GCL programme, was pleased to hear of the Top-Rated designation and the strong scores particularly for teaching expertise, course structure, staff involvement, and quality of facilities.
Most graduates from the programme go on to work for
companies or in the judiciary
after graduation, and last year, notably, a GCL alumnus was appointed
Prosecutor General of Rwanda
This programme, as well as the rest of the one-year, English taught
at the Faculty, are currently accepting
for studies beginning in September 2018.
*This programme is
accredited in the Netherlands under the LLM CROHO label Criminal Law and Criminology (60669).
