Duke-Leiden Institute in Global and Transnational Law

The Duke-Leiden Institute in Global and Transnational Law is a one-month programme providing a strong foundation for those interested in international and comparative law as well as for those planning to study law in the United States. The programme will focus on subjects such as trade agreements, human rights, and comparative criminal law.

Course information

The Duke-Leiden Institute in Global and Transnational Law will take place from 20 June to 20 July 2022.

-- Depending on the applicable COVID-19 regulations, changes to the programme format might be made. Should this be the case, the information available on this website will be updated accordingly. --

The programme is divided into 2 two-week terms. All courses are taught in English and all (except for Introduction to American Law) are taught by faculty members from different legal cultures, exposing participants not only to comparative law studies but also to different teaching methods. 

Target audience
The Institute is aimed at students who have completed at least three years of law study, students preparing to study for an LLM degree in the United States, and other advanced law students from all countries. The Institute also welcomes judges, academics, practitioners, and other professionals seeking knowledge of American, international, and comparative law to apply for the programme.

Class size & Study load
A maximum of 50 participants will be admitted to this Institute. Classes are limited in size (up to 25 students) in order to facilitate interaction between faculty members and students.
Students may enroll in as many as 3 courses and must enroll in the same courses for both terms of the programme. Netherlands lawyers may, however, attend a single course for one or both terms.
​Classes take place on weekdays in the mornings and afternoons, and no courses will be offered simultaneously.
