Columbia Law School and Amsterdam Law School offer a joint programme in International Criminal Law, with an exchange to the US in the second semester. This Master track is the first to focus on international criminal law as a distinct field of legal study. The central aim of the joint programme is to train a new style of international criminal lawyers who are capable of transcending (disciplinary) borders, by offering a broad and deep understanding of relevant issues pertaining to international and cross-border justice and supporting the development of academic skills through the in-depth analysis of such issues.
The programme is unique because of the dual perspective it offers on international criminal law. A common law focus on international criminal law offered by Columbia Law School is combined with a civil law perspective provided by Amsterdam Law School. Graduates will receive their LLM degree in International Criminal Law from Amsterdam Law School, and a certificate on International Criminal Law from Columbia Law School.
The programme combines the study of theoretical aspects and foundations of international criminal law with its practical application, by offering workshops in international criminal law and opportunities for dialogues with practitioners from courts and tribunals as well as related international criminal justice organizations.

The University of Amsterdam offers two tracks under its Master's programme on International Criminal Law. The second, other track offered by Amsterdam Law School offers a full LLM in International and Transnational Criminal Law. Whilst the first semester is generally similar to this joint programme, the second semester comprises international and transnational criminal law courses and opportunities for internships, law clinics and research for courts and tribunals in the Netherlands.
