Groningen Top-Rated for Global Criminal Law LLM

15 March 2018
top rated programme 2018

In addition to the Faculty of Law’s LLMs in International Human Rights Law and Public International Law being 'Top-Rated' again 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 LLM programmes at the Faculty, are currently accepting applications for studies beginning in September 2018.  


*This programme is accredited in the Netherlands under the LLM CROHO label Criminal Law and Criminology (60669).
