If a firm or institution wishes to verify the authenticity of your LLM Advanced Studies diploma, the following procedures apply. The LLM Advanced Studies graduate should send the verification request him/herself to Leiden Law School’s Office for International Education by email: international@law.leidenuniv.nl. In your email please clearly state your name and date of birth, the date and title of your degree, and the contact details of the organisation requesting diploma verification. You should also mention the manner in which we must send the confirmation of your degree (post or email). Please attach a legible copy of your LLM Advanced Studies diploma.
Important note: If the firm or institution requires certified copies of academic records, please instead follow the procedures as described above under ‘Certified copy of diploma with accompanying transcript’.

Note that copies of academic records cannot be sent by email, for reasons of privacy and fraud prevention.
