International Dispute Settlement and Arbitration (Advanced LL.M.)

Student Life

The programme International Dispute Settlement and Arbritration (Adv. Masters) is taught in The Hague, the Netherlands’ fastest-growing student city, offering great study and career opportunities to students from all over the world.

The Hague student city

The Hague is the International City of Peace and Justice and it’s home to countless embassies, political institutions and international courts. Leiden University’s The Hague Campus also boasts a distinctly international character. Nearly all our master's programmes there are taught in English, to students who come from all corners of the world. This is useful, to say the least, because it will give you the opportunity to quickly expand your own international network, something you will benefit from for your entire career. For those times when you’ve just finished an exam, for example, or you simply want to relax after a hard day’s studying, The Hague has plenty to offer. For some well-deserved rest and relaxation, in The Hague you’ll have easy access to some 11 kilometres of beaches, almost in your backyard.

Sophia is derived from the Greek word ‘sophos’(σοφός), which means wisdom and was founded in the summer of 2014. Sophia’s two goals are to create more interaction between Dutch law students and international law students and to organise interesting and more intellectual minded activities for the international law students.
